I have recently started a furniture redesign company, Weckner Design with the purpose to encourage a sustainable living. I redesign old, discarded furniture to create unique, sustainable and functional design with a combination of Scandinavian, retro and contemporary style. In the redesign work I primarily use reclaimed furniture and recycled and organic material sourced from socially responsible suppliers.
I would really appreciate your opinions on the designs, ideas and other input.
