FROM WHARF TO SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE
The Danish company, THORS-DESIGN was founded in 2002, when Carsten Thor began working with reclaimed wood from a retired wharf in Denmark. Today, the fundamental idea behind all the furniture from THORS-DESIGN, is that of upcycling. Rustic Azobé wood, sourced from decommissioned Danish wharves, is turned in to simple and stylish designer furniture. The result is bespoke, hand-made furniture with a natural Nordic feel that retains the integrity, history and natural character of the wood. The wood’s original raw look is a result of its exposure to the natural elements for more than half a century. No two pieces of wood are identical. Each piece of furniture is unique, full of life, warmth, character and soul.
The team behind THORS-DESIGN creates furniture with an understanding of the way that wood works and moves, incorporating its natural grooves and crevices. The reclaimed wood has been validated and certified as containing only natural oils. The furniture is virtually indestructible, with a life cycle lasting as long as the wood’s own history. All the furniture from THORS-DESIGN can be used indoors and outdoors all year round, in private homes as well as public spaces.
