Sustainable Brand Tomas & Jani Bringing Prototype Clearance Pop Up Shop to Brighton

Brighton- Today, Tomas & Jani, a circular company specialising in making surfaces and contemporary furniture out of waste materials have announced that they are opening a pop-up shop in Brighton. After accumulating a surplus of prototypes, the brand is now looking to shift their excess furniture and worktop samples at a reduced rate.

Following a countdown, they announced on their Instagram today at 1pm that they will be opening their first ever pop-up shop selling furniture and DIY bird houses made from offcuts from their workshop and other small eco-friendly gifts for sale perfect for Christmas presents and stocking fillers.

This follows another announcement just earlier this week, with Tomas & Jani launching a competition calling for aspiring sustainable designers. Entrants must design a piece of furniture in any way they like and the chosen winner will get their design made in the Tomas & Jani workshop, and the winner will get to keep the piece of furniture too. Tomas & Jani have vowed to credit them on their website and social media pages, as well as at London Surface Show 2023.

About Tomas & Jani: Tomas & Jani are a small circular business that make surfaces and contemporary furniture out of waste materials. They use a variety of waste materials in their products such as used coffee grounds, coffee bean husk, recycled paper, reclaimed wood, ground metals (copper, brass, steel, bronze etc) and stone etc. All the products they use are cruelty free and non-toxic. Tomas and Jani was founded by Slovenian-born Jani Lemut, who moved to London in 1992 after graduating from the School of Arts and Woodworking in Ljubliana. His move was encouraged by his desire to expand his design skills and broaden his experience. After moving from London to St Ives. Cornwall, he eventually settled in Brighton after starting a family, which he describes as “brilliantly eclectic”. The Tomas & Jani workshop is just up the road in Lewes, and as well as selling their own collection online, they also specialise in bespoke projects.

When asked about his passion for sustainability, Jani said “As a child I loved the beauty of the forests, lakes and mountains surrounding my home. This naturally led to a passion for the environment and sustainable materials. My biggest loves are furniture and abstract art; many of my pieces are sculptural in their form and everything is entirely hand-crafted. I produce my furniture using a ‘closed loop production’ system which means that the items often use reclaimed materials, they are durable, repairable and there is minimal waste, all of which is non-toxic.”

The pop up shop will be at The Converted Chapel Retail Space, 114 Church Street, BN1 1UD (just next door to Côte Brasserie) from the 8th-11th December 2022. You can find out more about them here www.tomasandjani.co.uk or follow them on Instagram www.instagram.com/tomasandjani
