I recently came back from Paris where I met an interesting group of designers who create beautiful pieces from salvaged mahogany window frames and have a great story. The windows came from all kinds of properties in France and became through a sorting, cleaning and cutting process new material.
What happens is that the modern furniture has a soul inherited from old memories. Tru is a truly ecological venture with good lyrical design.
The story is that in France there actually is a window replacement company, a major player in that field, that cares about the ecology so much that it set out to find a group of excellent designers to re-use the recuparated wood and create a sustainable furniture company.
In 2010, Fabrice Millet the industrialist, Damien Hamon the cabinet maker and Oliver Papet the designer set up the RU Edition Company.
