Recreate is a cutting edge interior design range started by Katie Thompson in 2009.
Using pieces of discarded junk, Katie recreates a unique, recycled range of furniture, lighting and interior accessories, each piece infused with its own previous character but with a new function. By blending South African craftsmanship, with high end finishes and her own eclectic perfectionist flair, Katie creates an original end product with a new integrity that epitomizes the very best of South African design.
Repair Manifesto (NL)
(ENG) Platform 21. The Repair Manifesto is part of the project Platform21 = Repairing for which we sought to make repairing cool again – over a period of five months.
Both with the help of designers and visitors, new repair techniques were developed and many ingenious repairs were carried out in Platform21.
Although the project has now ended in Platform21, it doesn't mean we are dropping the repair mentality. Platform21 = Repairing will soon travel to New York, and we hope the manifesto will keep inspiring people to STOP RECYCLING and START REPAIRING!
So rediscover the joy of fixing things and share your repair knowledge. Together we can keep this movement going, one that isn’t new per se but has been forgotten.
