Inspired by London’s heaps of discarded furniture and usable timber, Ryan Frank’s Strata [2] line turns deconstructed old office furniture and FSC wood into new, sleek chairs and tables. Following the success of his other recylcled-chic designs like Inkuku [3], made from recycled plastic bags [4], and the Hackney Shelf [5], Ryan has once again proved that trash can be treasure.



‘Strata’ is a range of furniture including a chair, stool, coffee table and dining table. Materials for the items have been sourced from old office furniture and FSC birch ply. The chairs are CNC routed from the salvaged materials.
