Malmö Upcycling Service creates homeware from recycled waste material

Malmö Upcycling Service has repurposed waste material from six different local industries to create a range of decorative home objects. 

“The initiative aims at generating new ideas about how to shape and produce in a more sustainable manner as well as create the conditions for circular manufacturing,” said Anna Gudmundsdottir, co-founder of Malmö Upcycling Service. “We continuously visit local manufacturers to find what waste is left over when they produce other products.”

The choice of location was not random: an abandoned machine workshop that used to serve the old shipyard. Shelves of tools and many of the old instruments are still in place, while the tables and many other furnishings have been made from reclaimed ship parts. The restaurant soon built a loyal following.”
