Re-Imagine is a project born out of questioning our resourcefulness and our attitudes towards waste.  It builds on the Studiomama’s interests in expediency and re-using the existing, and speaks of our ability to see the potential in the overlooked and unloved.

As with Pallet Project, there is a message contained in ‘Re-Imagine’ and that is to inspire and encourage us to look again at the unloved furniture in our homes, streets and markets and to make it anew.  This is not just a sustainable approach to design and making, but a social one too; through working together with local craft people and pooling resources we can re-imagine the second-hand and redesign our everyday surroundings with our own touch of personality.
