The fundamental idea behind the furniture from Thors Design is that of upcycling. Rustic Azobé wood, sourced in decommissioned Danish harbours is turned in to simple, stylish designer furniture. The result is bespoke, hand-made pieces with a 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 from being partly submerged in the Danish sea for over 60 years. Each creation is unique, full of character and soul. The part we love most about our raw material, is that what many see as a flaw or undesirable, we see as invaluable. The marks, bolts holes and other details you see in our wood are simply a testament to the wood's history and authenticity. The wood is FSC certified recycled 100% and has a life expectancy of 50-100 years, even outside.
