Gallery: James Henry Austin’s Olympic-Inspired Project Won Furniture is...


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.
