Recup Design - Labeur
Recup Design is part of Labeur vzw, a social-environmental organisation based in Ghent. Recup Design is mainly concerned with transforming recovered wood into new furniture. The wood they work with comes from many different sources: old furniture obtained through private individuals, but also floorboards, beams and planks from demolitions or renovations. They work mainly with softwood (pine), but also with oak and beech, and sometimes even with tropical hardwood. In addition, they sell scaffolding wood as a distributor of steigerhout.be. Occasionally other wooden elements can be found, such as a set of solid oak doors, a balustrade, or a staircase.
The furniture of Recup Design is custom made in their workshop on the Nieuwevaart. The wood is nailed, sawn, sanded or planed and finished according to the wishes of the client. It is also possible to have your own wooden furniture “refreshed”. Also belonging to the possibilities: interior and exterior finishings made and installed, using reclaimed wood
