Unwanted furniture reused to make Rietveld-inspired chair

UK-based company Burniture designed a chair inspired by Gerrit Rietveld's Red and Blue Chair. The UK-based company reuses old unwanted furniture to create new sustainable pieces, like the Rohan Chair.

'We stand against a one-way system of production, consumption, and disposal because we believe our lives don’t need more things, things need to be given more lives', the brand mentions on their website.

Burniture rescues old scraps of furniture from skips, the street, and donations. They take them to the studio and repurpose them through a process of creative reconstruction. Each piece comes with an adoption booklet about where it was found and how it was rescued and repurposed, as well as a packet of seeds for a plant to match your purchase.

The Rohan Chair's wood came from an unwanted oak table and shelves. The design was inspired by Gerrit Rietveld's Red and Blue Chair and his book on furniture making. The chair is a take on flat-pack furniture and can be easily dismantled and reconstructed. 'Taken to the beach, to a festival, by a fire, or wherever you see fit.'
