Why this wood? I try and use recycled material wherever aesthetically possible. This wood was originally used for packaging imported goods and then discarded into small pieces. We buy them in bad shape and our carpenters work their magic in creating beautiful boxes to package an Anand Prakash product.
The metamorphosis is like every other product that we design; simple and ordinary to beautiful. All such boxes are marked “recycled wood” and it’s a small step towards reducing, reusing and recycling.
