After the success of the Re-Imagined Chair during the London Design Festival 2012, 19 Greek Street is currently working with Nina Tolstrup to develop a complete furniture collection including sofas, daybeds, dining chairs, low chairs, and a variety of tables, all bearing the same aesthetics and honouring the same values of craft, up-cycling and sustainability as the original Re-Imagined Chair.
A unique collaboration with fashion brand Marc by Marc Jacobs, the project features a range of limited edition pieces upholstered using fabrics from previous Marc by Marc Jacobs’ collections.
Conceived and created by Nina Tolstrup, Re-Imagined is a project born out of understanding of the importance of resourcefulness. It builds upon the designer’s interests in usefulness and re-using the existing, and speaks of her ability to see the potential in the overlooked and forgotten.
As with her previous design production, there is a message contained in the Re-Imagined series. Tolstrup wants to encourage us to look again at the unloved furniture in our homes, streets and markets and to make it anew. This is not just a sustainable approach to design and making, but a social one too; through working together and pooling resources we can re-imagine the second-hand and redesign our everyday surroundings.
