Olympic-Inspired Furniture
The Project Won collection by James Henry Austin is Subtly Sporty

The Project Won collection may be inspired by the Olympics, but it is not obvious from the get-go. Instead, the influence is very subtle, even if the title isn’t. An understated tribute to the glory of the 2012 London Summer Olympics, each piece is crafted out of salvaged floorboards pulled from UK sports halls.

Crafted by Shropshire-based designer James Henry Austin, the Project Won collection is comprised of five pieces: a chair, table, bench and two versions of a coat hanger. The painted lines maintained on the panels of wood is a nod to their original state and athletic origins. Hand-sanded and recoated in natural wax oil, the pieces in the Project Won collection are rustic.
