Recup Design has a socio-ecological approach to furniture. It uses reusable wood they get from individual persons, building companies, booth builders, and so on. Wood that would otherwise would get lost end became incinerated. Scaffold planks are turned into bookshelves, an old squash floor becomes a dining table, discarded terrace wood is transformed into a garden shed … All of this is made to measure, to meet the client’s exact requirements. Recup Design also has an extra social dimension as it employs people with little chances on the labor market.
