The Rag and Bone Man Designs Beautiful Rooms from Trash
The showroom takes on a new form: customers visit warehouse of old scraps to pick 'future heirlooms’
Paul Firbank, the Rag and Bone Man who repurposes London’s scrap yards into bespoke home ware, is shaping what it means to be a resourceful and sustainable designer in the 21st century.
Often, the artist can be found in his warehouse mixing and matching random, recycled items until they take form with a story of their own. After each new piece is completed, it is stamped with a serial number and archived on the company website.
