Reline, a collection of recycled tableware by Anna Borman.
What’s interesting is that the “recycling” happens by simply uniting mismatched (and thus less desirable) pieces into a more desirable collection simply through a graphic element — a bunch of object orphans becomes a family. (Not too far from the Uncollection idea, right?)
She set about collecting vintage and antique white porcelain dishes and tea things. She then creates mismatched sets by printing a pink line and recycle symbol on each piece.
“The idea is to reuse and upgrade all the random, left over white porcelain cups and other dishes,” says Bormann. “The simple vertical line is visible from most angles and gives an obvious indication of belonging to the different white set of parts. Once these different individuals are put together they become an original yet completely new tableware set, providing a unique atmosphere to the dinner table.”
