So the company Artek released a line of furniture called 2nd Cycle. It consists of re-claimed pieced of their furniture (mainly Aalto classics), character and all, that are being re-sold under this line. I absolutely love these pieces! The furniture comes with paint chips, patina, and home repairs that make each piece unique. It is a very anti-consumerism approach re-using existing well designed pieces of furniture that have withstood the test of time. The company hasn’t even done a thing to the furntiure besides purchasing back pieces to sell under this line.
Along with each piece comes a coded RFID tag that is related to a record of that furniture’s history, story, and information about its origins. It really is a pretty brilliant marketing idea that is also environmentally conscious (instead of throwing out it becomes re-used/new again.) No two pieces are alike.
