UPCYCLING

I was recently informed of 'UPCYCLING': to reclaim, reuse, recycle; to give old products & materials a new lease on life.

When you can, buy it old or rescued. I slowly replaced all the hardware, doors, fittings & fixtures at The Society inc. with salvaged pieces as well as using them in all my commercial projects.

There are a few great salvaged places in the world:

Keystone, Hudson, NY

Lassco, London

Urban Archaeology, TriBeca, NY

Old Goode Things, Chelsea, NY

Chippendale Restoration, Rozelle, NSW

Terrace House Factory, Ultimo, NSW

-to name a few. Be conscious, be green!
