Thursday 20th of September a new and exceptional furniture brand called As Good As New was launched at SPRMRKT Amsterdam. As Good As New is a collaboration between advertising agency Gummo, architects I29 and Krimpex Coating Systems.
Four years ago these trio joined forces to create a new office for Gummo, inspired by the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ philosophy. The interior was furnished entirely with recycled and reclaimed furniture, covered in a specially developed, environmentally friendly coating.
The result was a sensation on-and offline, so two thousand articles and a few awards later, the three partners have decided to make a range of brand new second hand furniture available to the public.
According to co-founder Hajo de Boer, it's made in exactly the same way as everything in the award-winning office – “We find old stuff we like. We fix it. We cover it with our special blend of solvent-free grey matter. Then it's As Good As New!”
"All As Good As New’s furniture is covered in a mat, dark grey nuance, which gives it a highly conceptual look mixing in perfectly in SPRMRKT’s high-fashion universe. " - Nelleke Strijkers, owner of the Dutch fashion store SPRMRKT.
During the launch a unique pedal bin – the result of a collaboration between As Good As New and the internationally recognised brand Vipp – was given away to one of the guests.
As Good As New is available to purchase at SPRMRKT and www.thisisasgoodasnew.com.
