Created in 2016 thinkFOUND is a furniture enterprise with a difference. Located in our East London workshop we make custom made tables from waste material with a turnaround of just 6-8 working days. We are also a Not For Profit work experience platform for young people frustrated with a lack of meaningful work experience opportunities.
At thinkFOUND young people are given the opportunity to learn, train and seek structured employment with transferable skills. For more infomation on our social mission click here.
thinkFOUND was born out of a love for simple, stylish furniture and a growing concern for our throw-away culture along with a lack of opportunities for social mobility within our society. We make use of 'FOUND' materials often the byproducts of other industries into beautiful made to order pieces of furniture.
Our organisation is set up as a Social Enterprise designed to give opportunities to those furthest from the employment market. We provide an individually tailored platform for people to learn skills, acquire qualifications and enhance employment prospects in a supportive, friendly environment.
Our inspiration draws from local Waltham Forest innovator, William Morris; a designer, social activist and pioneering environmentalist. Morris believed human beings can transform society and themselves by the virtues of beauty and function.
