Twin woodworkers Jason and Lars Dressler are the brains and hands behind Brothers Dressler. Based in Toronto, they craft, repurpose and salvage objects to create unique furniture pieces.
And not only do I love their collection, but am so into their respect for materials, craftsmanship and process.
“Wasting material is taboo to us and we believe that with a little creative thinking much of our potential waste can be repurposed into useful and beautiful objects.”
Their products are composed of long-lasting individual components so that they can easily be disassembled into their component parts and either re-used or recycled at the end of their useful life-cycles. I support all designers who make a conscious effort to promote and use eco-friendly practices.
The Slab Chair made it to House and Home magazine’s 2009 Trend watch. If you happen to be in Toronto next week, look out for them at the Interior Design Show February 5-8 2009.
