Re-Imagined Furniture by Nina Tolstrup
Nina Tolstrup, the designer behind London-based Studiomama, has released a new furniture collection following on from her previous projects based on the idea of re-use. The Re-Imagined furniture range is made from discarded furniture that is updated and given a new lease of life.
The chairs feature rounded rectangular forms that create unusual proportions, while vivid colourful upholstery and bold geometric patterns add an element of fun to the designs. The textile prints are produced by London-based studio David David Design.
The chairs are being shown alongside other furniture and products with environmental leanings at new Soho gallery 19 Greek Street in London, which opened this week as part of London Design Festival. The gallery aims to be a hub for contemporary design, focusing on craft, sustainability and social design.
For more on 19 Greek Street and the London Design Festival – which runs until September 23 2012 – see the Stylus report London Design Festival: Preview.
