Well Proven Stromboli Edition
A collaboration with Marjan van Aubel
Inspired by a trip to the volcanic island of Stromboli courtesy of the Fiorucci Trust a land of black rocks and sunsets we produced a new collection of Well Proven Furniture including the first ever Well Proven Chaise. Using the same process as the previous Well Proven Furniture we developed a technique of adding powdered graphite to the mix and specially mixed spirit stains to dye the legs.
The Well Proven Furniture began with the discovery that within industry between 50-80% waste is created in processing raw timber into usable products. We decided to try and make a new material from this waste that usually comes in the form of sawdust, shavings or chippings. We discovered a bizarre reaction between this wood waste and bio-resin where the mixture expands up to five times its original volume into a strong, lightweight foamed material.
