L’Officiel magazine, February 2011

A Recreate Suitcase Chair proudly featuring in the Travel section of Dutch luxury & fashion magazine L’Officiel.

The article is in Dutch and our stockist in Amsterdam “From Africa With Love” is mentioned as the contact. They have also kindly translated the article for us. It goes something like this…

“For those who are not so keen on travelling and prefer to stay at home, there’s a solution: The Suitcase Chair. Made of authentic old suitcases. You can also send your own suitcase and have it transformed into a chair.”

Thanks Mariette (From Africa With Love)

Recreated furniture. A chair out of an old trunk. A lamp out of a broken vacuum cleaner. Another lamp out of a vintage milk bottle. No, it’s not an imagination exercise that I’m doing, I’m just listing some of KT’s creations, the designer behind the Recreate project. Katie graduated from design school in Cape Town and had worked for 7 years in furniture design before turning to redesigning old and broken objects that she transforms into the most amazing pieces. A process not only creative, but also very eco-friendly.

‘We couldn’t have been more delighted when we were asked to ‘think outside the Melrose Jar’!

The task was to conceptualize ideas for products that children could make from the empty Melrose packaging. See the awesome results on their new website…
