THE RE-COVER PROJECT
We are proud to consider The re-cover project as an important part of our studio’s body of work and further development. Launched in 2015, it stands by the idea of reintroducing mid-century modern design furniture to a new audience, by integrating contemporary elements to their design.
Specifically, while in the 60s this modernist style was widely used and popular in Cyprus, as time went by, these pieces were disdained and abandoned by their owners, possibly as a result of unawareness of their aesthetic value. Thus, seeking a creative, interesting and fresh way to give prominence to their distinct design, we have created original fabric designs, replacing their old upholstery. In a way, our goal was not only to bring the piece to its former glory with just a restoration process, but also to incorporate an element that would correspond to current design and cultural trends.
