Anu Tandon Vieira’s The Retyrement Plan is an unusual, new-age business venture. She creates beautiful, eye-popping decor pieces out of things as ordinary as twine, old rubber tyres, old wood, bamboo, cane etc…
She says her products are about connecting the dots to make something new from old stuff, and she is passionate about making it so pretty that “our hearts can be a little lighter and brighter” as we go on with our lives.
True to its name, The Retyrement Plan is a cause. As each conscious and funky product is being created, a variety of people connect and benefit across vast social and cultural divides. They contribute towards an idea which is all the richer thanks to the differences shared.
Says Anu, “Lovingly held in hands, colorful twine rearranged, weave a story for a myriad people who see the shimmer in the dust of this incredible land. Retyrement Plan is a symbol of of our times.
Each and every one of us will consume contemporary design which is created purely from old materials….the current endless waste tonnage, with no place else to go has to return to the new necessity of Earth’s evolution…. Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.
Upcycle – wholecycle – anycycle,
everything that flows in a cycle has a place in our lives ..”
Thank you Anu…those are wonderful thoughts, and they sure hold true for your work!
