The reSeat comes from designer AW, who keeps and reuses everything she can around the house. Overtime, she had collected bags and bags of packing peanuts and she stored them in large black trash bags. One day she accidentally seat on one and thought it felt surprisingly comfortable. Then she thought, "These packing peanuts can really make comfortable little stools!" However, trash bags full of packing peanuts aren't really visually appealing. So from there she decided to design beautiful covers for “trash bags full of packing peanuts.”
The idea of reSeat is to motivate and encourage people to reuse the packing fillers that we get from packages. People now-a-days do a lot of shopping online and therefore, have collected a lot of package fillers such as foam and packing peanuts. We thought instead of those being landfills, it would be much more fun to reuse and turn them into a fun piece of furniture!
As you sit on reSeat, over time the packing peanuts will be squashed down and making room for more of those unwanted packing fillers.

The Prop has been designed to a strict brief of efficiency both in use of material as well as energy, whilst still retaining a high aesthetic appeal. Completely manufactured in the UK for this first edition, the Prop is perfectly timed as consumers balance cost, both financially and environmentally with the desire for beauty.
The Prop is a black acrylic table lamp consisting of three laser-cut moulded pieces that radiate from a central triangular form. The manufacturing process used is the reverse to traditional acrylic moulding in that the acrylic is laser cut to size first and then moulded to ensure an absolute minimum of wastage from a single sheet, 3% in fact. The low energy light source reflects off the gloss finish of the lamp, playing with perception and the conventions of a typical lampshade.
