Time to go to Down Under. Kew [Melbourne], Victoria, Australia to be exact. Home of Brett Coelho’s studio. Just like Boris Bally at the other side of this globe, Brett Coelho makes furniture and other items from legally collected and recycled street signs. The Speed Lights pendants are water-jet cut and hand folded. The shades are enamel sprayed with various colours on the inside and polyurethane sealed, protecting the original surface of the street sign on the outside. The vibrant colors in combination with the graphics are a real sight for sore eyes.
Brett Coelho: “This work is about celebrating the ordinary, finding beauty in the most unlikely of places. The fact that my work is made from recycled materials is important. I think there is enough stuff’ in the world already and far too much waste.”

To keep upcycleDZINE running, I’m asking you for your support.
Your contribution will allow me to:
– meet the hosting costs
– upgrade to keep track of traffic increases
– add new content, and keep improving the older content
– add new functionalities to this site
– improve how it works and how it looks
– and last but not least, my daily dose of coffee 🙂
Again, all contributions will be reinvested into the aforementioned associated costs of running this blog and will help ensure the ongoing quest for quality upcycle design.
Your kindness and generosity will be greatly appreciated and will give me the motivation to continue.
Every contribution, however big or small, is so valuable for the future of upcycleDZINE.
