WORKSTEAD reclaimed 'maravillas'

Tuesday 24 November 2009

Yesterday, browsing one of my favorites blogs Design*sponge, (This blog was one of the first ones I came across about a year ago, and since them has became a fan of it, for its diversity, constant source of information/inspiration), learned about WORKSTEAD, a company that makes from furniture, textiles to lighting, using reclaimed materials such as old wood and steel. Their range of lighting is quite impressive, with an industrial look that I like very much!!

A give a 10!! to this design duo, Stefanie Brechbuehler and Robert Andrew Highsmith, not only for taking into account the only way forward ‘sustinability’ by recycling materials and giving them a new life, ‘Upcycle’, but for creating such a nice mix of products and styling them in this gorgeous simple way!!

I hope we all become more aware of the need to be responsible for what we consume and how we treat our planet and ourselves!!

Workstead Table - Composed of 100% reclaimed materials, the table is built from two steel stands formerly used to support the structure of a ship’s hull.
