Check out this "green idea." Dutch designer Marije van der Park took an orphaned piece of heavy old-style furniture and transformed it, thus providing it with salvation. This piece she calls "Out of the Cupboard"...
She sandblasted it and perforated the interior, creating a poetic light pattern that gives it a modern lift.
The idea was "based on the idea of improving discarded furniture using new techniques, part of the collection re: use | re: make | re: value which is centered on the reuse and revaluation of discarded objects," she says.
