Re-use by Rotor

Justed spotted this over on Superuse - Rotor is a Brussels-based design group who works specifically in the realm of industrial waste re-use. Their 'Kitchen One' project uses laser-cut plywood, taken from a company specializing in making die-cut cardboard for packaging, to create paneling for kitchen cupboards. In their first life, the wooden panels were used as punching boards for creating the shapes of the cardboard boxes - now they live on as beautiful kitchen cabinets.

Fantastic! I would love to have these in my home.

Kitchen cabinets are something you use every day, yet you probably never take the time to appreciate them. They seem simple enough, but there is actually more than plenty involved behind the scenes. There are many things to consider regarding kitchen cabinet refacing, cabinets materials, finishes, door designs, and even information on hardware.
