The Berliner Manufactory JOHANENLIES makes high-end furniture from recycled construction timber.
To make something new out of something old is the leading philosophy of Dutch founder Mike Raaijmakers, who has always been fascinated by the idea of upcycling. Planks of wood that are no longer useful on the construction site are taken to the workshop, reconditioned, refurbished and made into furniture by hand. Every piece is unique. Modern thinking in terms of the dealing with natural resources and sustainability are mirrored in the industrial-minimalist design JOHANENLIES employs for their timeless creations.
