Many office furniture companies, such as Herman Miller and Steelcase, have put stringent measures in place to reduce or reuse their own production waste. But not every furniture company does the same. This has provided an opportunity for designers to reclaim these unwanted byproducts for their own purposes. Adrian Boggs and Adam Gregory are using a mixture of discarded furniture and manufacturing remnants to create a unique collection they call “The Bottom Line”.
The artists/designers hope to start a conversation about how we define what’s useful and beautiful and enhance the upcycling trend for furniture. You can view some pieces at Boggs’ website here. The designs are sparse and minimalist with a focus on function. At the same time, the pieces have a certain elegance and definitely don’t look “trashy”.
