Project Won


London’s role as host city for the 2012 Olympics has inspired craftsman James Henry Austin to create a range of furniture made from salvaged sports hall flooring.

Collected from across the UK, the flooring planks are sanded and recoated in natural wax oil, leaving the painted markings intact. Traditional joinery techniques are used to turn these unwanted floorboards into clean and minimal furniture.

The original sports markings on the wood highlight the material’s past history and add sporadic dashes of geometric colour to an otherwise simple range of furniture. 

Project Won is Austin’s inaugural furniture range. He previously worked on architecture and landscaping projects.
