About the Work

After two years in a temporary office, 400 workers at a creative agency in Montreal were finally about to get a new home. The only problem was that the old office was filled with wooden furniture that would be thrown away. Rather than create waste, the life cycle of the wood was extended by turning the old into new. The concept for the new furniture was inspired by the architectural language and form of the new office building. Each piece of furniture was designed to be easy to REUSE, REPAIR, and UPGRADE in the future. The old wood was turned into new tables, stools, chairs, shelves, and libraries. Furniture that was multifunctional and modular was created for different uses depending on the needs. This allowed something temporary to be everlasting. At the end of the day, EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF WOOD was used.
