Why we’re called Dodo
We have a lot of love for the Dodo. The extinct Mauritian bird is commonly used as the archetype of an extinct species because its extinction occurred during recorded human history and was directly attributable to human activity. The phrase “dead as a dodo” means undoubtedly and unquestionably dead, whilst the phrase “to go the way of the dodo” means to become extinct or obsolete, to fall out of common usage or practice, or to become a thing of the past.
Due to our increasingly consumerist lifestyles perfectly functional objects have become extinct to us and as a consequence have ended up as landfill. As a way of addressing this issue we have decided to find a way of regenerating old or unwanted furniture and making it appealing to consumers again whilst keeping it’s design contemporary. This will run alongside our interior design projects which will look at ways of improving commercial and residential environments with ecology, sustainability and social awareness. Our aim is to prove that sustainably sourced products and materials can work in a commercial world.
