REMADE Picnic is made almost entirely out of reused components. The tabletop and bench seats are made of steel shelves from old filing cabinets. The frame and legs come from the old Gispen Next system from 1993. The fittings are the only new components, which have been designed to join the different parts of REMADE Picnic together, forming a brand-new picnic set.
The components of Gispen REMADE are derived from old products, thus without using any raw materials. This prevents us from having to melt any steel, for example. REMADE saves a great deal of energy, resources and transport and is therefore environmentally friendly.
The benefits of REMADE Picnic:
- Sustainable design with a second lease of life
- Modular system
- Picnic tables can be linked together endlessly
- Suitable for both indoors and outdoors
- Extra comfort due to felt top layer
A special outdoor finish is applied to REMADE Picnic, making this picnic set flexible in use and suitable for both indoors and outdoors.
REMADE Picnic is modular and is available in different sizes. Moreover, the tables can be linked together endlessly. A felt top layer can be added to the seats for more comfort, which is easily installed with magnets. The felt top layer is available in various colours.
When we were designing REMADE Picknick, we already took account of future returns and reuse of the components and materials. Gispen takes responsibility for the entire lifespan of this product. When a REMADE Picknick product has reached the end of its lifespan, Gispen will take the product back and give it a new function or refurbish it. Due to a score of 72% on the circular ladder, we have awarded REMADE Picknick with 4 stars on our circular model.
