We build one-of-a-kind interior items based on sustainable materials


You can hire us to support you in designing, developing and creating items based on sustainable resources


Buying furniture nowadays is like buying clothes, its (rather) cheap, easy and delivered to your doorstep in a split second in case you buy online.
Let’s call it “Fast Furniture”.
What about it? It’s nice, fits to the latest interior trends, looks good, is brand new and hopefully gives you a good feeling (for the moment) etc.
But have you ever concidered the impact on the environment? Where was it made? Under which circumstances? By whom? Did it (or parts of it) travelled half the planet to reach your house?

Running Projects

We hope you are delighted and inspired by our work so far. See below our running projects on Instagram


We are more than happy to deliver tailor made interior items based on your demands. We can support you in designing, developing and creating customized interior items based on recycled raw materials. We do not aim to serve only privat persons, but also want to convince companies to invest in sustainable furniture. How awesome to have a unique interior item wearing your brand?

We are looking forward to our collaboration.

Feel free to contact us for any details or questions!


Inspired by an industrial style, we like to design and create kick-ass furniture and other interior items with pure, fair and durable raw materials. We carefully source our raw materials from their last station on earth; IRON from the scrap yard and WOOD via old furniture which is aimed to be disposed. Via this way we like to contribute to minimizing our footprint, but also add kick ass items to the world. We use solar power to keep our power tools running and try to use and buy second hand machinery. When it comes to finishing (painting etc) we try to make a right balance between durability and sustainability. We hope the craftmanship and uniqueness of our products are valued so we all can have a better future!


Driving force behind PROJECT-81

After a few years working in the commercial sector, I realized the work I performed did not fullfill my needs and did not add value to our world. I had a strong drive to create and develop, combined with a sustainable contribution towards our (direct) environment. With PROJECT-81, I will use my creative skills and sustainable mindset to turn old abandoned materials into durable, functional and cool interior items.
