Dezeen Platform: design graduate Clinton Sheldon brings a series of products made of components salvaged from the factory of British furniture company Ercol to our micro-exhibition Dezeen Platform at Dezeen Space today. Watch a movie about this project here.
The pieces are made using redundant components that would otherwise be destined for Ercol's factory furnace.
One piece is wrapped in a red electrical cable, leading to a light bulb.
Another piece is a rocking chair that utilises discarded pieces from the factory's wooden chairs.
Other stories on Dezeen featuring discarded materials include a sledge made from a leftover Christmas Tree, a cabinet made from reclaimed floorboards and an animated pond made of 60 discarded computer monitors.
Each day, for 30 days, a different designer will use a one metre by one metre space to exhibit their work at Dezeen Space. See the full lineup for Dezeen Platform here and see all our stories about the work on show here.
