Claire Danthois

Having studied furniture design at Plymouth University, Claire’s first body of work was her ‘Once Discarded’ range made from reclaimed timber. Threaded together with boat rigging cable she uses no glue or other chemicals – creating organic functional forms. This series of work was first exhibited at the Eco Design Fair in London where the Independent selected ‘Once a Door’ as the ‘Best Recycled Chair’. Claire’s award-wining piece, “Once a Door”, was exhibited primarily in London as well as at the Utterubbish SIT UP’ [re]Design in Singapore.

‘At the forefront of the sustainable design movement, UK artist Claire Danthois advocates for environmental responsibility through her creation of clever, stylish and functional furniture built exclusively from reclaimed materials. Danthois’ philosophy is predicated on the belief that the former lives of found objects provide a rich context and an intrinsic beauty that enhances her own work.’
