The art of upcycling

Bombus specialises in re-design.

On their own terms, this means that they customize vintage furniture and homeware accessories with decoupage work of old maps, old illustrations, you name it. I love those wooden letters above. I find them soft and sturdy at once.

And this reclaimed vessel turned bowl covered in a 1950’s London street map. It’s been layered with the vintage map, then glazed with a clear lacquer to give it a smooth glossy finish. Tres voyageur chic.

Thank you Kickcan & Conkers for introducing Bombus to us.
