A recurring comment on upcycleDZINE is the way upcycle design makes you look at things. Upcycling makes you see objects in a totally new way with a different function. And best of all, discarded objects don’t end up in landfill.
Just like used tools. If by any chance you’ve got any of them laying around somewhere, you might start to look at these tools in a different way. Not that upcycling tools is easy, and certainly not the way they’re presented in this post.
The beautiful side of tools
The upcycle furniture pieces featured today are very impressive. The creations are by a creative Brazilian studio called Outra Oficina, based in São Paulo. The studio is founded in 2013 by designers Leo Capote and Marcelo Stefanovicz.
Outra Oficina is famous for the way they mix everyday objects and materials into new designs. Each object takes on a new ironic and humorous role aimed between design and art. In this way they try to show beauty in these basic objects and materials.
And that’s just what they did with their BOLOLO collection. Looking at this chair, table and cheese dish, I have to admit that it made me smile. And that’s a something I’m always searching for.
At the same time I was bewildered by the enormous amount of craftsmanship that was put into these furniture pieces. Every design created by Outra Oficina is completely handmade.
