Designers With A Repurpose: Rafinesse & Tristesse

Using discarded oil drums from around the world, Rafinesse & Tristesse (designers Karim Egger and Petra Schultz) make these lively household design items that have just the right dose of whimsy. We first discovered them when we arrived in Barcelona and attended a fair dedicated to recycling called Drap Art. It was the one item we wanted to buy for our new apartment but never got around to it. Now if they’d only come stateside, we’d snatch up a few stools! They’ve recently written to us showing new items that we’d like to share with you. All of their designs are made in Switzerland and Germany engaging two social projects for manufacturing making the ‘goodness’ of their company full circle. One of these social projects is  Triva which works with addicts in Bern and USE which is a working station for handicapped persons in Berlin.

Here are their new products:
