Hand crafted in a UK based studio in Nottingham. Our aim is to produce uncompromising, beautiful and sustainable products from recycled and repurposed materials. Taking inspiration from Mid Century classic design, popular culture and the natural world to produce a catalogue of products which add value to any space.
We are excited to create new and innovative products which are economic, ethical, and sustainable.  We aim to answer the needs of our customers now and moving forwards into a greener future. If you wish to contact us for individually commissioned pieces, we are happy to discuss your ideas and collaborations.

Studio ThusThat:

ThusThat explores the hidden backstories of everyday materials; bridging design with innovations in material science, to create statements that are strong, and direct in form, keeping the complexity packed within the materiality itself. Their work primarily focuses on the use of uncommon materials such as industrial wastes, to suggest alternative futures. They have developed a range of techniques aimed at transforming these mining wastes into architectural components, including a novel proprietary system for applying a coloured glassy surface to waste-based concrete bodies.
ComposTerra’s mission is to make sustainable lifestyles more accessible by extending the journey of biomaterials. They turn waste streams, like coffee grounds and wheat bran, into useful products, e.g. plant pots and food bowls. Their production method uses heat and pressure to press our mixture into the desired shape.
Their circular innovation provides a sustainable alternative to conventional materials. ComposTerra’s products are made from renewable sources and are fully compostable. Hence, they turn into fruitful soil instead of mircoplastics.

Kenoteq has created the world’s currently most sustainable brick made of 90% recycled construction waste. The K-BriqTM has been created in response to concerns over the environmental impact of traditional building material waste generated by the industry each year, placing it as the world’s second-largest producer of CO2 emissions.

It gives landfill material a new lease of life, allowing the design and construction sector to reduce its carbon emissions by 90% compared to using traditional clay bricks while reducing reliance on imports. Its technical credentials are comparable or superior to competing for traditional brick products at specification levels of structure, strength, acoustics and lifespan, while it also has double the thermal insulation qualities and is set at a competitive price point. They are also short listed for the Dezeen Sustainable awards.


Solidwool chair


Solidwool was born from the idea to create something beautiful – and to create sustainable design with an  unbreakable link to nature and our surroundings. We use wool from upland, hill-farmed sheep, historically used in the UK carpet industry. Demand for this wool has declined and is considered almost worthless, a by-product of sheep farming. We are currently focused on using the wool from Herdwick sheep, the iconic breed of the British Lake District. This wool is wiry, dark and hard. Regarded as the most hardy of all British breeds, they roam the high fells for most of the year, naturally hefting themselves to the land.





Malai is a novel biocomposite material based on Bacterial Cellulose grown on waste from coconut processing units and natural fibres from Banana stem, Sisal and Hemp. This material is produced in the form of sheets that can be produced either in standard format of 120x80cm or molded to any desired pattern. The sheets come in a range of colors (achieved using plant based dyes) and three types of weights (gsm). Weight refers to material thickness as well as its strength and flexibility.
We at Malai believe that whatever we borrow from nature should be able to return back to it safely at the end of the product’s life. This is why we committed not to add anything of synthetic origin or oil based in our materials. All the materials we produce remain 100% home compostable, they will biodegrade in compost within 3-4 months. The material is also vegan and water resistant. However it’s difficult to predict the exact lifespan of the material, given a proper material care it can last in good condition for 4-8 years.



ITG studio

A game changer for the design-tech industry, Interesting Times Gang is a Stockholm-based design studio that questions the future role of design by tackling new ways to integrate technology into the design process and make it more sustainable.
Interesting Times Gang used a material that combines recycled fishing nets with wood fiber, to create 3D-printed designs that can stay within the same material ecosystem once they reach the end of their life-cycle. These objects can be ground down to create new bio-materials that can be reused again and again, to create entirely new objects within a closed design loop. The result is “Kelp Collection”, a furniture series created to bring attention to the fact that vast amounts of known underwater kelp forests have been eradicated due to unsustainable fishing practices and rising ocean temperatures (Kelp removes as much CO2 per hectare, as 20 hectares of trees).



cindy lilen

Cindy Lilen is a textile lighting and deco workshop that creates custom-made sculptural lights and structures for interiors with an emphasis on original design and craftsmanship. Most of the pieces are inspired by ancestral textile communities, mainly from South America. The aim of its hand-made pieces is to transform interiors into an oasis for busy lives and to make people feel good and reassured.

Raw materials produced according to the logic of natural cycles and sustainability are the main characters of this collection. Pure Patagonian merino wool, cotton fibres, and wood shape the designs that convey the value of artisan’s hands and highlight the natural beauty of each material. Moreover, a meticulous analysis of the impact of lighting on people’s moods accompanies the creations to guarantee the perfect performance of each piece.

made of air

Made of Air is in business to reverse climate change. The Berlin-based startup produces a carbon-negative material. They take carbon dioxide from the air and permanently store it in materials that can replace fossil-based plastics or other high-emission materials, like aluminum.
To achieve this, they use low-value wood waste to create biochar, a material with high carbon content. This carbon sequestration product can be used in a wide range of applications where durability and long lifetime are necessary, effectively transforming materials from creating emissions to reversing them.
A key focus area for the company is the built environment sector with both interior and exterior applications. The product at display is one of a few hundreds of panels that made up the rainscreen façade that clad the exteriors of an Audi car dealership in Bavaria, Germany.
HHHagen HinderdaelA collaboration with Austrian 3D printed concrete specialists Concrete3D, CONTOUR is a 3d printed concrete bench combining environmentally friendly printing technology with bespoke design. Launched in March 2022 at the Vorarlberger Architektur Institut, the feature bench has been developed with sustainability and its local context in mind.
In its form, CONTOUR takes inspiration from the surrounding landscape of Vorarlberg. Organic curvatures are printed layer by layer to reveal the topographical layers of the mountainscapes coupled together to form the seat. This design language continues into the elevation of the bench itself, as it mimics the peaks and troughs of the skyline of Vorarlberg.
