Project Won, Chair, London, recycled wood, [1]

Inspired by the 2012 Olympic Games, British designer James Henry Austin [2] 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.
