Vintage Vinyl Design
Vinylux transforms vintage records into a variety of new designs,
bringing vinyl records back into the home.
Jeff Davis began molding vinyl records over custom-made forms as part of a graduate school thesis project. His designs preserve the look and feel of the old vinyl, including the original record labels, while creating new, useful, elegant objects. Since 2002, hundreds of thousands of old records – past their playing prime – have been collected and transformed into everything from clocks to guitar amps.
Vinylux gets its supply of recycled vinyl from record shops, dealers, collectors and in some cases, from people’s attics. Every year, we recycle and reuse approximately 150,000 records or almost 40,000 pounds of material.
Committed to energy efficient manufacturing, the majority of the production process is done in our Philadelphia studio. We do not throw away any part of the record: album covers are converted into sketchbooks and notecards, and leftover material is collected by paper recyclers.
Closing The Loop
Vinyl scrap from our shop is sent to record-pressing plants where it is re-ground and turned back into brand new records, closing the loop on our material stream.
