Derelict Furniture by Tõnis Kalve & Ahti Grünberg

Tõnis Kalve & Ahti Grünberg have a unique approach with their Derelict Furniture; they reclaim wood from industrial scrap, selected woodpiles and abandoned sheds, and upcycle it into fine furnishings, where flaws are incorporated adding character to the pieces .

The Estonian designers and interior architects, Tõnis Kalve and Ahti Grünberg wanted a green, creative and modern furniture made out of wood collected from different intriguing places. Some of  materials comes from a decaying cafeteria terrace of the 1920’s Tallinn Hippodrome, other from a restricted Czarist-era military building on a distant Baltic coast or a time-worn camping shed which used to shelter nature explorers in Estonia’s primeval Soomaa swampland. All plywood pieces are made out of special limited-edition plywood packaging from Russia .

The  manufacturing process involves a lot of cleaning cleaning, bonding and calibrating  the wood to the right size to achieve the wanted design. While each piece still keep the character of the used material.

The collection includes the Shut up lounge chair, Skyscraper high chair, the 50/60 chair, the Chopsticks modular shelving system, the Big Mama Table and the Grab a Goat coffee table.
