Singapore -- Recycled denim jeans get a whole new lease on life in the d-Blue Collection, one of eco-friendly furniture company d-Bodhi's 2011 IFFS Street Art collections. That raw, urban energy shines in the d-Bright collection of 13 models of table, floor and wall lamps, while dynamic fresh combinations of recycled teak wood and brushed-iron add to d-Bodhi's foundation furniture collections. And dB Couture Collection presents clothing with a street smart attitude.

Well known for their solid recycled teak wood furniture, along with metal and wood combinations, this year's Street Art collections expand on d-Bodhi's quest to seek out new materials to reuse and reshape into distinctive, upbeat designs.

As the demand for reclaimed teak wood raw materials grew, d-Bodhi's design team kept asking, "What other materials can we reuse and recycle? Why stop at teak wood furniture? Let's expand our vision and get even more creative." This drive to use material others would trash and turn it into treasure, a fresh new product with many more years of use, is the hallmark of d-Bodhi.

Now exhibiting for the fourth year at IFFS, founder Raymond Davids wants furniture buyers "to understand what d-Bodhi stands for ... our innovation of design, creative adaptation of recycled materials and our commitment to extending our vision each year with several new collections."

The show stopper this year is bound to be the d-Blue seating collection. Each year thousands of kilos of used jeans land in second hand stores in Indonesia, where production headquarters is located. Always on the look out for innovative raw materials that are easy on the environment, the d-Bodhi creative team dreamed up this imaginative line of casual chairs, puffs, even a coffee table made from recycled jeans. Two different sized jean bag chairs, plus colorful denim covered lounge chairs complete the collection.

This year's teak wood furniture uses even more left-over pieces of softly faded colorful recycled wood from old houses, often combined with brushed-iron for a decorative look and structural support.

Expanding on the Street Art theme led to the d-Bright lighting collection, floor, table and wall lamps in a bold, artistic look with subtle industrial or graffiti patterns on the lamp shades.

Last but not least, the dB Couture collection extends d-Bodhi's lifestyle concept with extremely soft denim jeans and T-shirts that deliver an edgy, casual chic style no matter where they're worn. Reprocessed cotton waste materials make up 17 percent of the denim fabric.
