Mike & Micki
That's right...Mike is a boy's name. And yes, it's short for Michael. How'd she get a boy's name? Her parents promised to name their first son after a family friend - but she was the third daughter...and last child. The name was promised, so that was that!After a stateside career in international marketing and economic development, Mike moved to Sweden in 2000 and added business development, strategic partner negotiations and social media to her list of experiences.
Micki – short for Michaela – is a bi-lingual half-American Swede. She had a dad from Gothenburg, has a mom from Seattle, and spent her formative years adventurously traveling with her family. As soon as the ink dried on her high school diploma, she booked it to Switzerland, eyes alight in anticipation of the glamor of being a ski-bum.

folks who help us
how we extend the lifespan of existing materials
Today’s companies want sustainable interiors that reflect the unique personality of their business, at the same time enhancing their CSR profile. Our reclaimed furnishings and spaces are designed to exceed expectations!
We deliver sustainable and economical solutions for surplus office furniture and supplies via our network match program with resellers, schools and non-profit organizations.
Most spaces are crying out for something unique, something that makes us stop in our tracks and say “WOW!”. We create one-of-a-kind pieces from reclaimed and repurposed materials that guarantee a double take!
Company teambuilding and school groups – join us and explore new ways of thinking and idea generation as we guide your group to find new form and function in reclaimed materials.
People always ask us how we get our collection of reclaimed materials, and the answer is…every which way possible! We hear about people who are clearing out spaces, we dumpster dive, we search high and low for piles of junk abandoned across the country, and sometimes we purchase from secondhand stores or individuals. It’s an inspired collection of scrap!
Whether we are creating a new interior with reused furnishings, or clearing out an old office and finding new uses for excess furnishings, space is a very important part of our business model. Our projects are designed to compliment and enhance the corporate social responsibility (CSR profile) of our clients, accomplished by creating and clearing spaces.
We believe in the multiplier impact of a social mindset, which is why from day one we included it as part of our business plan. Bringing a social enterprise aspect into our projects not only affects our story – and the story of our clients – it also affects the stories of the individuals that we nudge one step closer to the Swedish job market. One project, so many stories!
