Coatings

We transform waste streams into high-end coatings for furniture, interior projects, and design applications.

For instance, waste streams such as concrete, leather, jeans, or even wine corks are turned into upholstery, acoustic materials, or complete interior makeovers. Choose your coating and we will apply it.

Soft surfaces

Comfortable, flexible, and seamless materials can be used to create waterproof furniture for indoor, outdoor, or spa settings. Individual solutions for your unique new projects or old furniture that need to be refurbished.

Re'volutionary
approach to design

At Herleven, we believe in rethinking the way things are done. We see a world where sustainable practices are the norm and waste is minimized. That's why we're building our brand around the idea of "re":

RE Think

Every project starts with an idea. Creating something new is a fascinating process but with today's heavy consumption, we want the industry to rethink ideas to be more sustainable.

RE Design

All clients have different needs so we’re here to offer individual solutions. Our goal is to create an aesthetic, flexible, and timeless design that is suitable to last within the circular economy.

RE Produce

We make products and we refurbish products. A worn-out item does not have to be thrown away. We can give it a new look without creating waste.

RE Use

From idea to final product, we can fulfill every step and much more. We believe that every item deserves to be renewed or recycled and used for another purpose.

Every step of the process, from concept to creation, can be done in a way that promotes sustainability and environmental responsibility. With our commitment to the circular economy and innovative solutions, we're excited to be at the forefront of this movement toward a more sustainable future.
