When used materials are recovered and reused, this contributes both to their revalorization as well as to the conservation of other resources. While altogether noble, it isn't necessarily easy to achieve harmony when introducing vintage elements in a contemporary setting. Certain designers have pondered this dilemma and now offer customized fabrication services that bridge the gap between viability and style. One such entrepreneurship, AdishOM Design, pushes the concept even further by creating adapted pieces made to precise, customer specifications.
Located in Montreal, A.OM Design fabricates a wide range of attractive, creative and eco-friendly furnishings, including tables, chairs, shelving, cabinets and other objects. Hugely influenced by Scandinavian decor, the company designs visually stunning pieces that are both functional and unique while taking into consideration the environment that they are destined to integrate. A.OM favours an artisanal approach with a strong accent on sustainability, which is evident in its almost exclusive use of either recycled or responsibly grown and harvested wood.
While A.OM specializes in fabricating modern wood furnishings, it also takes on various rehabilitation projects, thus breathing new life into existing objects and surroundings without consuming new products. Materials are reworked as little as possible in order to allow the full beauty and character of the wood to shine through.
