It’s not that often you get a chance to win a handcrafted table that’s made from reclaimed materials, built by high school apprentices, and an exact replica of a table that was built for the local Whole Foods Market…now’s your chance!
The Savannah-based design/build furniture studio Oxform has been working with the student apprentices from Design for Ability over the last few months to build tables and counter tops made from reclaimed materials for the new Whole Foods Market on Victory Blvd in Savannah.
Oxform has creatively brought together materials from various waste streams (including the Jones Street interior that Emergent Structures deconstructed) to create a memorable and sustainable interior for the new Whole Foods Market. More pictures of the process can be found here.
The replica table (to be completed in the next 2 weeks) will be auctioned off at the upcoming fundraiser for Design for Ability. The fundraising event, featuring some Savannah home brew and 4 of Savannah’s most sought-after bands, will be held at the soon to be complete E.34 Greenhouse.
Mark your calendar: Sunday, October 6th, 2013, from 3pm until 8pm. Don’t miss this event! And don’t miss out on the opportunity to win this amazing table!
While some tables were built from materials from the Jones Street house, other tables were built from bowling lanes that were deconstructed by our soul mates at Southern Pine Co.
The Whole Foods Savannah project is a perfect example of how many organizations and individuals can work together to stimulate awareness of sustainability’s value in a community, and we want to thank Rene Teran at WellFED Magazine for starting the entire Whole Foods collaboration!
