Odds & Ends, Bits & Pieces

At Process 376, we've been working on a project using curb finds and other urban freebies, so it seemed like a good time to feature the TESTLAB project at Studio Jo Meesters. "TESTLAB is an experimental ongoing project about rejuvenating and reusing discarded materials." These furniture pieces were all made from discarded wood beams and leftover blankets.
I love how the woven fabric details and colors make the materials choices look deliberate and fully considered. This is always a challenge working with recycled materials, and these pieces strike a nice balance, showing their humble origins without being visibly made from "trash."
