The Third Generation Furniture project is the ultimate in turning trash into treasure. Industrial designer Jason Lloyd Fletcher set out to turn unwanted materials into new, functional pieces of modern furniture. The two main goals were first, to avoid sending items with “functional value” to the landfill by reworking their components into new pieces and second, to promote the reuse of items that can alternatively find value elsewhere.

Each piece has a unique look and you know there’s a story to tell behind it. I love how he’s taking items that people no longer find attractive or useful, deconstructing them, and then turning them into something with a completely new look and feel all with his unique spin on it.
