FABRICA Repurposes Found Materials into High Quality, Cheerful Guatemalan Furnishings

When FABRICA does use new materials for their chairs, tables and other interiors, they carefully purchase only FSC-certified woods  that have the smallest environmental impact. Otherwise, they find a use for everything from recycled rubber  and aluminum to Guatemalan horse reins, old coffee sacks and even the metal workings of soccer balls.
Some of our favorite designs include the Vandergan chair series wrapped in everything from organic cotton to coffee sacks , and the awesome street ball seats made with football springs and puffy fabrics. We are also partial to the rope chair and the whimsical candle holders made with beer and soda pop cans. Check out the rest of our New York Design Week and ICFF coverage  for a look at even more spectacular eco designs.
