Nina Tolstrup: pallet furniture projects



Nina Tolstrup of studiomama has designed a collection of furniture which is constructed
of reclaimed wood taken from unused pallets. on her web-site you can purchase DIY
instructions on how to make our own pallet chair / bench low and high, as well as
the pallet floor lamp.

nina tolstrup's pallet furniture has been shortlisted in the furniture category of the
2010 brit insurance design awards.

as part of this pallet project, tolstrup had a number of the pallet chairs customized by british artists,
including gavin turk, cornelia parker and rachel whiteread, which were auctioned off to
raise money for the area of lugano, buenos aires. here photographer and gallerist cecilia glik
has set-up an organization where unemployed locals are manufacturing the low pallet chair
using nina's instructions, turning discarded pallets into sellable furniture, helping people in poverty,
improve their lives.
