Designers To Watch: Brothers Dressler




    Cast-offs destined for the dump such as tree stumps, shoe lasts and 100-year-old window sashes get a new life thanks to identical-twin designers Jason and Lars Dressler. The Toronto-based siblings transform found materials into rustic, yet sleek lighting, tables and seating with an industrial edge. For instance, belts used in a dry-cleaning factory are wrapped around an oak frame to create a stunningly spare day bed. The humble materials belie the beauty of these one-of-a-kind works, making the Dressler's designs stand out in a market flooded with eco-friendly products. View their collection.
