kitchen by mike

While I'm on the topic of recycling this week, I thought you'd like a look around Koskela and Kitchen by Mike. They occupy an old industrial warehouse in Sydney's inner city. It's full of inspiring Australian made homewares and furniture using recycled and natural materials.  
I've been here a few times for lunch and a wander around Koskela design centre. This is where Kara Rosenlund's Frankie was parked on her visit to Sydney.

A canteen style eatery with fantastic food and an everchanging menu based on seasonal produce. 'Mike' McEnearney was formerly executive chef at Sydney's Rockpool.

This is a brilliant idea, but not easy to get a good photo of. A window / wall of chalkboard painted herb pots, each labelled with chalk writing. The pots sit in 2 layers of steel mesh. It has it's own irrigation system and trough at the bottom to catch and recycle the water.

I love this wine barrel table and rusty recycled gate.  

Great use of recycled pallets
