Tiffany Threadgould

ReplayGround is the brainchild of Tiffany Threadgould's recycled designs. A graduate from Pratt Institute Tiffany wrote her thesis entitled ' Thrash Nouveau-reincarnating garbage into usable products' which set her on the path to seeing waste as an invitation to creating something extraordinary, functional and sustainable.

This pendant lamp is one of my favourites, it's made out of recycled venetian blinds(the smaller version) and metal. It comes apart and can be packed flat for shipping or moving homes. I don't know if this is the only colour it comes in, any questions or shopping should be directed to Replay's site.

Another clever use of rubbish is this room divider made of over 1000 film canisters. and elastic. Again this is not only functional and beautiful but it's also very practical as it can be rolled up when not in use or again if you're moving you it makes for easy shipping. I love this piece it's probably my favourite due to the photographic reference.

Collaborations I would like to see: Le Corbusier, Decorati
