Our friends at Designboom recently tipped us off to these beautiful reclaimed cabinets made by Denmark-based Søren Rose Studio. Dubbed ‘Gymnasium’, the collection was inspired by the glory days of high school and is made from recycled gym flooring. These cabinets are not only assembled with renewable, recycled and low-impact materials — they also pay tribute to the simplicity and spirit of the games that once graced their floorboards.

The first incarnation of the line was created in 2008, utilizing recycled gym floorboards. Søren Rose Studio paired the familiar graphic lines of each board with a simple silhouette, creating a collection of unique modern pieces that pay homage to the materials’ original use.

Today, while mass-produced, the pieces continue to implement eco-friendly materials such as renewable pine, controlled Danish oak and water-based fixatives and varnishes. Gymnasium is sold globally by Mater and crafted by Denmark’s oldest cabinetmakers, Bruno Hansen Company.
