Transforming Scrap: Studio ThusThat’s Sustainable Furniture

Post Image

Studio ThusThat‘s One Side Sawn collection offers a striking example of sustainable design, transforming scrap aluminium into a series of furniture and homeware pieces with a rugged, industrial aesthetic. The collection derives its materials from the “crusts” of aluminium, which are offcuts from the smelting process, usually discarded as waste. By intercepting and repurposing these sheets, Studio ThusThat showcases the potential of overlooked materials in creating beautiful, functional objects.

One Side Sawn includes a range of items, from flat-pack tables to shelves, cabinets, mirrors, and desk accessories, all made from a single sheet of aluminium. The design process was meticulous, with the studio mapping out the cutting pattern in advance to ensure no material was wasted. Each cut produced a piece with a wavy edge, informing the shape of the next object and creating a seamless, interconnected collection.

What sets this collection apart is its embrace of imperfection. Rather than smoothing out the saw marks and bumpy surface texture of the scrap metal, Studio ThusThat highlights these features, celebrating the material’s industrial origins. The pieces retain a raw, uncoated finish, emphasizing aluminium’s natural qualities and aiding in its recyclability.

Through projects like One Side Sawn, Studio ThusThat encourages us to rethink our relationship with materials and waste. By familiarizing ourselves with the aesthetics of secondary and rougher materials, the studio suggests that we may one day consider them the norm, especially in an era of finite resources and energy crises.
