Woodlife Sweden at Archtober | Waste is not waste until you waste it. Design and upcycling – Meet the designer.

Waste is very rarely waste. It is often an unused resource. This is something furniture design and manufacture company Stolab took to heart, working with designer Marie-Louise Hellgren, a pioneer in the upcycling movement in Sweden, to develop a new chair from recyclables.

On the initiative of the designer, they decided to make use of the offcuts from one of their other products in a new design and the stool “Lilla Snåland” was born.
