Reduxx's Shop Announcement

Hello all designers, recyclers and Breakfast at Tiffany's enthusiasts alike! I am introducing the Redux Tub, a project that I was inspired to take on after reading and seeing many examples of artists and designers reusing and recycling materials in profound and sustainable ways.

~Adaptive reuse has always been an intriguing facet of the design process. Progressive redesign and recycling efforts not only lessen the amount of materials ending up in landfills, but bring awareness to the design profession in a profound and holistic way. The life expectancy of a product can ultimately become circular in design through REDUX~

~The Redux Tub adapts these principles in a degree of sustainable efforts. The cushions are made up of 100% soy-based foam made right in Toronto while the fabrics range from natural blends such as Hemp to recycled Polyesters. The exterior paints vary in colours amidst Benjamin Moore’s Low/Zero VOC catalogue which meet very stringent “green” paint standards. Adopting natural materials for a design is one element but certainly not the only key player. Supporting Toronto’s local Upholstery and Foam services within walking and biking distance becomes an even greater part of the design equation; one that can resolve the problems of careless waste and minimizing our ecological footprint, all in the comfort of a cast iron bathtub~

~Additional original accessories can be added to a piece such as original brass plumbing fixtures, facets, drains and plumbing to authentically preserve it's 'tub like' appeal~

Currently I have (5) complete tubs ready for sale. Olive, Clementine, Alba, Ava and Scarlet! All have different cushions styles and fabrics. Each Redux Tub varies in price primarily due to the type of fabrics and quantity of cushions used. Please contact me for specific price details and/or for custom upholstery ideas and colours!
