Chairs back hangers. Designed by Antonello Fusè for Resign.

“REsign is “RE-use of signs”, a creative re-combination of signs embedded in wasted objects, which have been rejected by the main stream production process, aiming to create, thanks to the re-use, a new meaning, characterized by a high identity and interpersonal value.” - Resign Project

Reusing has always been part of my lifestyle, from the post-war thrift inherited from my parent’s generation through the very influential punk movement to the ecological concerns of today. In the punk era in which, like other folk cultures a lot was done with very little, a big zip became a tie, an old kettle a handbag and a bunch of safety pins a brooch. I found this so inspiring and loved the energy and inventiveness and still do.”
