ResourceLab creates stylish, functional and locally produced eco-design out of discarded materials. Designers Ben Hagenaars and Ollivier Piqueray give these materials a total make-over or use them as resources for completely new design pieces. The items are beautiful, functional as well as eco-friendly. Their unique style and identity makes them emotionally valuable, so they last longer than regular furniture. ResourceLab’s designs are 100% Belgian, thanks to local manufacturers who are part of the social economy.
