Germany - Recycled Plank Furniture

All our furniture is individually designed and handmade by London born designer-maker Michael Ferguson. Michael began recycling old pine floorboards into furniture 15 years ago in Australia. He eventually moved to Brighton, England and continued to transform discarded wooden boards into unique, one-off designs.
Now in Berlin, his favourite material is the palimpsest patina rich, yet humble 100 year old Berlin floorboard. Predominently from living spaces/apartments, each individual board is quietly evocative of the private and personal stories in Berlin’s dramatic political history.
All the materials we use are second hand, reclaimed, pre-used, disused, neglected or discarded, and are sourced from the street and old buildings in and around Berlin/Brandenburg.

A commission, this is already happy in its new home. Made of course from reclaimed Berlin pine floorboards.
