With so much waste generated by unsold items in the furniture industry, do we really need another new furniture brand?
In the case of LAAT, the answer is a resounding yes, thanks to its unique design philosophy.
LAAT is a local furniture label founded by two award-winning creatives: interior designer Cherin Tan, founder of interior architecture firm LAANK, and multidisciplinary artist Alvin Tan, co-founder of art and design collective PHUNK.
LAAT’s purpose is to repurpose; the label produces furniture collections crafted from unsold items and material waste, breathing a new life into dead stocks and turning them into bespoke items that straddle the realm of design and art. We asked Cherin to share more.
