Daniel Svahn creates furniture collection using repurposed table tops

The Goodies But Oldies collection features three pieces made from repurposed MDF table tops
We really need to teach and emphasise the difference of cost versus value. Even if the costs of buying new or upcycling and reusing are the same in the end, the value of doing the latter is greater
– Daniel Svahn
Daniel Svahn, a Stockholm-based furniture designer, has created a new range of sustainable furnishings, made from recycled MDF tabletops.

Svahn, who is studying an MFA in Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, debuted the collection, called The New Goodies But Oldies collection, during the Stockholm Furniture Fair in February.

It was created for Nacka Town Hall in Stockholm following its refurbishment and forms part of Svahn's studies.

It consists of three pieces - an individual seat with an elongated side for privacy and two sets of co-working seats - made from 14 repurposed tabletops, taken from one of conference rooms at the town hall, that were destined to be dumped.

The designs were inspired by common workplace activities and interactions that Svahn observed inside the town hall.

"The public sector is a huge material waste contributor because there are not enough rules, regulations or guidelines when it comes to tending to furniture that is considered to be old, obsolete or broken," says Svahn.

"We really need to teach and emphasise the difference of cost versus value."

"Even if the costs of buying new or upcycling and reusing are the same in the end, the value of doing the latter is greater because it saves material and with emissions and other extraction and production footprints," he adds.
