Reinvention means to radically change the appearance, form, or presentation of something.

This beautiful chair has been made from a recycled suitcase and is a true reinvention.  It has been designed by green enthusiast Katie Thompson from South Africa.

Katie Thompson started Recreate, an interior design range and has seven years experience in the design, furniture and fabric industry in London and Cape Town.

The suitcase chair is made from an old Samsonite suitcase, a steel reinforced internal structure, upholstered linen and turned timber legs.

This is definitely a ‘Proudly South African’ product.
