Two young designers from Turin have created Deformazione Professionale  – a line of clever new furnishings made from old unwanted doors. Founders of Studio Lacrime D’Arte , Valentia and Riccardo Sartori  have created a bookshelf and a chaise lounge by recycling  a total of four doors. The doors take on new functionality and a fresh look while keeping their characteristic traits – the handles and locks are retained.
Valentia and Riccardo Sartori  have realized a hidden potential in old doors, and how its minimalist straight lines can be used as a basis of forming contemporary furniture . These doors are cut by hand and shaped into the desired forms. The bookshelf is made of two varnished doors, with the handles and locks intact, using pieces of a third one for support. The chaise longue on the other hand, is cut out of only one door, complemented with a leather seat and antique oak stand.
