ReFurnish/ReUpholster by Anita Johansen

Danish designer Anita Johansen is launching the first piece of her furniture collection ReFurnish/ReUpholster at next week’s opening of The Danish Design School’s Graduation Show 2012 in Copenhagen.

The collection is an exploration of traditional furniture upholstery. Anita wanted to work with the dilemma of the traditional craft and craftsmen of upholstery that has lately been under pressure from technical development as well as high hourly wages, which results in outsourcing of upholstery work to other countries. In order to keep and recreate the scandinavian upholstery sector, Anita wanted to look into new directions and possibilities that could be competitive cost wise.

The first piece from the ReFurnish/ReUpholster collection is made from classic nordic materials and consists of 2 parts;  a simple oak frame and a felt upholstery component. The ready-made upholstery component can be bought separately and can easily be installed at home by the user. This means the user can customise the upholstery and easily exchange it if wanted.

The piece is multifunctional and made for modern family life.
