Upcyclist: Reclaimed and Remade Furniture, Lighting and Interiors
Upcycling goes upscale in this beautiful, elegant, and global collection that showcases what today's designers are creating out of yesterday's materials. Upcycling is the process of transforming seemingly low value items into something new. Today's upcyclists are creating stunning furniture, lighting, and art objects that combine values of superb craftsmanship and design with ideas of how "waste" can be both inspiring and informing. While the environmental and financial benefits of upcycling are readily acknowledged in Upcyclist: Reclaimed and Remade Furniture, Lighting and Interiors, the designers and makers profiled show how the practice can result in pieces that are as aesthetically exciting as anything created using only raw materials.
