Upcycled Furniture From Reclaimed Pipes

January 10, 2012 by

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.

Then the designs just rolled out: armchairs, bar chairs, small bar tables and a pipe bench. The designer says he has a plenty of other ideas in store for other objects.

Love the naturally variegated colors on the individual pipes.
