Upstyle design principles

Upstyle design principles

Upstyle designs are not just products made from waste materials.

We believe that in order to successfully reuse materials, we have to use common sustainable design methods and add some of our own standards. The visual above shows this.

  • We design for disassembly and repair, do not use toxics and are in favour of natural or renewable materials.
  • Upstyle products are designed to be produced on a large scale and put back in the economy as much rest materials as possible.

We use locally available residual wood that is remanufactured by digital manufacturing facilities or with the help of social workplaces.This way, we aim for a decentralized furniture remanufacturing model that is flexible, social and resilient.
