thinkFOUND was born out of a love for simple, stylish furniture and a growing concern for our throw-away culture. Our inspiration draws from local innovator, William Morris; a designer, social activist and pioneering environmentalist. Morris believed human beings can transform society and themselves by the virtues of beauty and function.
We are a small business based in East London that makes custom made tables from the waste product of scaffold boards. We tailor tables to customer’s measurements and have a turnaround of 6 working days.
thinkGREEN The wood we use comes from businesses that are getting rid of unwanted wood, which would have otherwise become landfill or burnt. At thinkFOUND, we believe in reusing discarded wood rather than purchasing new timber. We use environmentally safe, non toxic and eco friendly oils and waxes to treat and finish our furniture. Our furniture is void of toxic petrochemical pollutants and high Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s).
thinkSOCIAL One of our aims for the near future is to work with various organisations building on previous work that has given young people a chance to learn new skills and valuable experience. We have in the past worked with young and disadvantaged persons of the borough - offering experience and skills in all areas of the business; design, production, marketing and running of the enterprise.
thinkFUTURE Going forward we aim to develop existing partnerships and create new relationships to progress the circular economy within the borough of Waltham Forest. We genuinely believe in William Morris’s words on Fellowship being the way forward. With this said, thinkFOUND would like to be more than just a business, we would like to develop talent and be a place where not just our business grows, but so do the people we work with.
