Upcycle - 24 Sustainable DIY Projects
In this inspirational and practical book, 24 international product designers show you how to recreate their upcycled designs. Inspired by the trend for recycling and craft, readers can follow the designers step-by-step instructions and create their very own piece of high-end upcycled design for the home. Projects include a clever waterproof mat woven from marine rope, a geometric lampshade made of strips of Tetrapak carton, a hanging rail using leftover copper plumbing pipe, decorative floral arrangements made from old plastic bottles, a cane chair upcycled as a cross-stitch canvas and many more.
Rebecca Proctor writes about fashion and interiors. She is particularly interested in all areas relating to craft, craftsmanship and sustainable design. Rebecca is the author of 1000 New Eco Designs and Where to Find Them and Recycled Home, both published by Laurence King Publishing.
