Recycled and Repurposed

Recycled and repurposed items are not only for those on a budget, looking to decorate one’s space with creative and inventive products, it is big business too.  These stools made from discarded fans and scrap wire by Hong Kong based KaCaMa Design Lab are a perfect example of post consumer waste materials to create functional products. It brought to mind the principles of a Circular Economy, that focuses on the longevity and life cycle of a product as opposed to the disposal society in which we live.
As accessing raw materials is often a challenge for artisan groups and producers, they often use recycled and repurposed materials to develop fashionable and practical products. Do you use recycled or repurposed materials? If so, we’d love to see samples of your designs and creations!
