Upcycling Exhibition at The Old Cinema

The Old Cinema in Chiswick is hosting an exhibition on upcycled furniture. The pieces on display illuminate the space with an array of striking and colourful designs. A perfect day out to gain some inspiration for your home. The pieces are crafted from waste materials and have been recreated into beautiful high quality objects.

In the words of Reiner Pilz

“what we need is upcycling – where old products are given more value not less.”

The wide range of artists on display at the exhibition allows it to cater for different needs and different tastes.

Lucy Turner‘s retro exotic pieces are particularly striking, she transforms and customises mid-century furniture with the clever use of laser cut laminate.
