Frame points us to a new exhibition celebrating high design with a green thumb.

Upcycling displays iconic designs from Marcel Wanders, Tom Sachs, Emeco, and more, at upscale Parisian charity shop Merci. 50 objects build a recycling narrative, each object referring to its origin in a different way. There are chairs of bottles (by two of the designers mentioned above), tables from apple boxes, and an array of inventive textiles.

The location of the exhibition works well too… a bastion of reuse and high-design aesthetics.
