Raw Materials, Amsterdam

Give waste materials a second life

For those like me who believe in the eyes of the skin and in a design which is not just a visual experience but above all a sensorial one, welcome to paradise.
Nominated  “Best Homewares Shop” 2011 by Time Out, Amsterdam-based Raw Materials is specialized in design pieces made of all sorts of recycled materials, including fishing-boats.

The seductive power of the unpolished, weathered, and used furniture of the store lies in the intrinsic beauty of its materials. Their imperfection is genuinely expressive.
The appealing products’ surfaces are deeply authentic and recall tactile sensations.

Cabinets, gym lockers, kitchen racks, coolers, pots, curtains, fabrics, dining tables, lamps, chairs and sofas at Raw Materials arouse sentiments: they have a history behind that can hardly be bought in a normal craft store.
