James Henry Austin's Olympic-Inspired Project Won Furniture is Made from Salvaged Sports Hall Flooring

Project Won, Chair, London, recycled wood,

Inspired by the 2012 Olympic Games, British designer James Henry Austin created Project Won, a line of furniture made entirely from salvaged sports hall flooring from the UK. All the furniture is handmade in Austin’s Shropshire workshop using time-tested traditional joinery techniques. The individual planks are hand sanded, leaving the original sports lines on display and then recoated with a natural wax oil. The furniture is handmade to order, one piece at a time and is built to last. The Project Won series consists of a chair, table, bench, coffee table and coat rack.

    Really a nice work of wood, the furniture has really been made by the clean hand and looks like strong enough to be use in olympics.
