Founded by Johann Bödecker & Jamie Hall, who have experience working with retail giants like Nike, Levi’s and Coca-Cola, London’s Pentatonic aims to recycle waste into premium furniture. They recently joined Snarkitecture on “Fractured” tables and chairs, which they’re follow up with a range of goods crafted from fashion waste.
Dubbed “New Clothes,” the selection encompasses Pentatonic’s AirTool chairs and hangers, all of which offer fabrics formed from upcycled fashion waste, like discarded clothes and factory scraps. This makes each item unique, while the company’s dedication to quality ensures comfortable, long-lasting design. Accompanying the chairs and hangers are pillows created in partnership with Italian textile house Bonotto, featuring a premium jacquard-printed fabric created from discarded bottles.
Pentatonic is commemorating the collection by launching a pop-up shop inside Parisian gallery, The Supermarket. Inside, guests can observe the process & benefits of the recycling process and buy items from the release.
If you’re not in Paris, shop the New Clothes line on Pentatonic’s website.
Elsewhere in the world of design, the Blue Cross for Pets is hosting an auction of dog kennels created by top design firms, including Zaha Hadid Architects.
