Wooden furniture is very rarely recycled, and we usually dump them as they get older. Such an attitude is born out of misconception that wood can’t be recycled. It’s not true; look what we have for you here.
A century ago, furniture in households and offices were all made up of wood. Later, with the advent of technology, and invention of newer raw materials, wood gave way to other material. And, towards the later part of history, we found that wooden articles were more convenient and comfortable. But their availability seems to be the major deterrent nowadays.
Designers Nicola Santini and Pier Paolo Taddei of AVATAR ARCHITETTURA recognized the importance of recycled wooden products. Most of their products are composed of merely three strips of wooden palettes — and can be see on Kann
Their designs are very simple and attractive in appearance. Moreover, they don’t bear any clue that they are recycled stuff. All are as good as fresh products.
A beautiful square pattern is given on their top to improve appeal. It is not just desks that they make, but all sorts of office equipment. We found images of book shelves and closets, all made of wood and redesigned by Kann. All of them retain their original quality, upholding the saying ‘Old is Gold’.
