I’m smitten by Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek’s imaginative use of salvaged pipes upcycled into chairs and benches. They could be fabulous out in the garden or in the right indoor space.
The tube chairs and benches are made from old pipes salvaged from the building the designer bought and renovated last year. Eek saved a bunch then transformed them into these very cool pieces, the first produced for a restaurant.
Love the naturally variegated colors on the individual pipes.
