Modern cupboard made from found objects encourages recycling of old furniture

A few finds from the streets of Amsterdam have been breathed new life into. Designer duo Marijke & Sander Lucas created an impressive one from this modern closet for Dutch Design Only. This is another step towards reducing waste pollution on land and water.

According to EPA statistics, around 9.8 million tons of furniture were disposed of as waste in 2009 only in the USA. Can you imagine how many tons of used furniture products end up in landfills around the world. This is the least recycled category of waste, although most furniture is made from recyclable materials. With this design, the designers wanted to criticize our frighteningly consumer-oriented throwaway society and contribute in their own way to reducing deforestation and deforestation before it comes to a catastrophic end. The eccentric “Trash Closet” looks like it was created by a catastrophe.

In this way, old and used furniture can be recycled

Fortunately, the problem of furniture waste pollution is particularly popular with citizens. The cupboard was put together from various found objects such as chairs, fans and stands. It is mainly made of oak (90%) as well as white pine and beech. “Trash Closet” is offered in a limited edition for € 8,140 by Dutch Design Only. The designers simply say about its dimensions: large!
