CIRCLE OF COLLABORATIONS
“When different parties work together, someones waste is another ones material to work with…"
Says Clarice van den Berg, Circular Accelerator @Furnify
Impraise is a tech company that focuses on tech feedback solutions. For their office in Amsterdam, Furnify worked with D/DOCK to create an interior with an authentic look and unique recycled furniture pieces.
“We designed a fresh and surprising space, almost ‘plug & play’, using ready-made objects and natural material like plywood – which is a daring choice. The floor was painted with industrial coating and punctuated by colourful carpets.” D/DOCK
The collaboration between designers and interior craftspeople ignited the idea to build cafeteria tables and table tops purely from leftover materials. This is the core of the circular approach: one person has spare materials, the other can turn it into something great.
“It couldn’t be more circular. Some sofas are reupholstered with sustainable fabrics: we sourced this couch, used good fabrics and nobody can tell it is a second-life item. Unless we tell them… We love to see how surprised people are when we do tell!”
