Puma is all set to get to work on its environment credentials with a new line of products that promise to have low impact on the environment. Dubbed InCycle, clothes and accessories in the line have been made with the use of recyclable and compostable materials.
Manuel Villanueva Pérez joined up a few disposable razors to fashion a tripod that does look kind of stable. We like how this can be an eloquent money saver, with a wee bit of creative exercise.
Throwing around a little weight can have its own uses. Heavy metal clocks have an air of simple, brute beauty about them. They are made from salvaged metal brought from yards south of Downtown Los Angeles. Created by Stephen J. Payne, the project is currently seeking backers/pre-orders on Kickstarter.
French artist Mark Sparfel finds old, discarded furniture that is well beyond its prime, and gives it all a brand new purpose in these artistic animal sculptures. The work is executed in an excellent manner, it does not seem that these elements have been repurposed; rather, the elements merge so well they might as well [...]
LitterBugs series of insect sculptures by British artist Mark Oliver are built entirely from trash. But they just go on to show how creative use can transform the ugly and the undesired to something so beautiful and desirable. We are not just talking of the beauty of these sculptures, even those generally vile insects look [...]
Raised in the Japanese Shinto philosophy, artist Sayaka Ganz believes there is life and a soul in everything, and all objects. Which would probably meant that objects sitting in trash bins won’t really be happy pieces. It was this belief that put the artist on her path, as she set to collect discarded plastic objects [...]
Raul Lauri uses a process employing high pressure and heat to create what he calls decafé, a material made from coffee grounds. The material that retains its coffee texture is then molded to form these unique lampshades.
Artist Asher calls his ReTech lamps “one of a kind functional art.” The stylish lamps with a classic-theme vibe are made mostly for reclaimed/recycled materials that the artist has found or obtained, and make a very prominent appearance in some of these lamps.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I’ve found a new love. Behold, the rocking bed. Manufactured by Shiner International, this design by Joe Manus uses up-cycled materials in its construction so it’s all good for the conscience, the environment, and for all the things going in my mind right now. And by those “things” I mean relaxation. Although [...]
Artist Robert Jefferson Travis Pond delves into scrap metal mostly from motorcycle parts, old gears, steel handles and a few other things to create these imposing, surreal animal sculptures. The impressive part of course is his ability to weld all these seemingly unrelated parts that don’t quite lend themselves to sculpting, and still come out [...]
Jeni Oye mixes up old bike tires with aluminum to create these wonderfully creative puffs and pendants. We’re pretty sure bike lovers would appreciate these things. Via Design-Milk
Artist Nick Georgiou uses old, discarded newspapers to create these abstract, weird, and mesmerizing sculptures or newspaper paintings, if we can call them that.
It looks like the latest creation of Andrew Chase is busy devouring anything that comes in its path. But that was kind of obvious given most creatures would fall prey to the “Tyrant Lizard”. The handmade mechanical creation was built using recycled metal that primarily came from transmission parts, conduit, plumbing pipe and unidentifiable widgets [...]
Technology really has brought the world closer, so this giant world map made from recycled computer components seems quite fitting. UK based artist Susan Stockwell has created this giant installation of a world map, made entirely from recycled computer components. The set uses motherboards, electric wiring, fans and other components from computers and electronics. Titled [...]
Aiming to re-interpret R2-D2 in a version that offered “future in the old” (as translated by Google) artist Charles Leonard made this intriguing version of a monocle wearing Steampunk R2-D2. To be true, we’ve seen a good amount of Steampunk and R2-D2 creations, but how do you ever manage Steampunk without a monocle? That’s just [...]
