Designer Anton Brunberg has created a unique and sculptural chair named ‘Pallet Thief’, that uses recycled pallets as his chosen material.
With a background in fine woodworking, furniture design, and conceptual design, Anton set about trying to find the answer to the question, “How to still celebrate the pure joy of making and craftsmanship without having to use up the planet’s precious raw materials?”
‘Pallet Thief’ was his answer. Anton mentions that he “calculated that there are some six billion pallets in circulation worldwide. Most are made of wood. Each year, one percent of those pallets reach the end of their lifespan or are lost.”
This resulted in Anton using the pallet wood as his building material for his oversized chair.
By tapping into this industrial global supply of pallet wood, Anton has found his own natural resource, which provides him with all the materials he needs, that also allows him to carry on doing what he loves with a clean conscience.
