Uptyred is an upcycling furniture company based in Cologne.
Our goal at Uptyred is to develop sustainable and environmentally friendly furniture for the home. In this way, we give the original materials a second life. With the help of flexible design, creativity and craftsmanship, we turn old tyres into creative pieces of furniture.
We are convinced that recycling and upcycling are the best solution for our environment.
The usual disposal method for used tyres is the production of granules or fuel by pyrolysis. However, these are by no means the most environmentally friendly types of use. The much better solution for waste disposal, we see in the reuse of the material in its actual state, in order to give the product a higher value.
Furniture made from old tires is very sustainable and environmentally friendly. This also helps to prevent deforestation, which is one of the main reasons for climate change.
