We create upcycled furniture and fine art, and not recycled product. We are saving old wood from the dump and transforming it. We produce small series or unique pieces or we personalise/customise products by the request of our follower, lovers of the environment.
Today we have activated a spinneret between public utility and garbage company to recover scrap wood by saving it from the dump. Our activity also provides to recovery from the street pallets, old furnitures and fixtures which be disassembled and stored in our warehouse. We spent a lot of time to increase the value of locally retrieved wood, fine as the most impacting new one, reevaluating the original materials properties with organic products like wax, oil and orange terpene.
Any creations are co-designed with young designers and creatives which design and make prototype of functional product with recovered materials in a short time by non-professionals using basic woodworking tools and carpenter techniques driven by LINFA team during open workshops. These are shared life times spent in the nature where young people learn with deeply immersive cases to exalt personal propensities. Our action is to transfer skills able to produce best practices for sustainable development.
