Studio Wae’s vision is to make an impact on natural raw material extraction by turning residual flows into scalable and beautiful products. We believe it is important that everyone becomes aware that waste can have a positive value. For example, we make circular paving that is made of 76% recycled rubble (Urban Mining) and modular 100% circular rugs, made from production failures from large carpet tile producers.
It is our mission to offer employment to as many Syrian status holders as possible in order to give them a better start of their new lives in Utrecht. The entire production takes place in Utrecht.
Circular Modular Carpets
The unique carpets with geometrical shapes are made of production waste from three of the largest carpet tile producers in the Netherlands: Interface, Tarkett and Forbo. Collaboration contracts have been signed with these pioneers in sustainability to prolong the lifespan of their waste. The designs are inspired by M.C.Escher. Choose any colour, shape and size to create a unique carpet that fits any space. With a unique clicking system the separate tiles are joined, providing complete freedom to create any design.
Modular carpet tiles
Next to carpets, Studio Wae also produces modular carpet tiles and Marmoleum patterns of discarded, overstocked or used carpet tiles from office buildings to complete the circle for the customer. The tiles are mostly produced for larger surfaces.
Design acoustic wall panels
Recently, Studio Wae has added circular wall panels to the collection. Again, the customer is free to choose shape and colours. The panels are not only decorative, but work acoustically, isolate and can be used as pinboard.
Architects and project upholsterers can present and/or choose a colour palette from our extensive physical supply. Then, the product is manufactured according to the desired design. We collaborate closely with our dealers Gispen, Royal Ahrend and Cantor, who can also submit designs of their own.
