Generally I think it's so difficult to buy DIY Products, often they look (for me) to handicrafted. Studio Stampel is an exception. Handcrafted in Melbourne from post manufacture timber waste, Studio Stampel designs accessories and homewares. And they are surprisingly affordable! Online here.
Just found another great project for Salone del Mobile Milano 2012. Marni presented a collection of 100 chairs made in Colombia by ex-prisoners. They reinterpreted this common seats and modified woven pattern and created new color schemas. So, if you are a lover of Marni fashion, I think you'll like this as well.... (btw Anticamera is Marni's quarterly online magazine, featuring words and images.)
