Make your own shipping pallet furniture with these tutorials.

Tolstrup developed her line of pallet furniture while participating in TEN, a dialogue between ten London based designers that was set up with the intention of responding to sustainability issues in design. The result was the Pallet Project, which initially consisted of the Low Pallet chair, the High Pallet chair in different sizes, a stool and a floor lamp. Over the years, Tolstrup also created a hanging light and a block stool. As Tolstrup explained to us in an email, “The Pallet Project is a sustainable, accessible and an agent for social change. The furniture is made from disused pallets – a source of cheap, often wasted, wood. It takes self-assembly to a new level of affordability; the raw materials are easy to find and the instructions simple to follow. Since its inception the project has unfolded in many unexpected ways.”
