Dutch designer Dennis Slootweg's rust covered creations, made from discarded industrial metal, take recycling to a whole new level of awesome. The pieces look like they came off the set of a dark science fiction movie or were salvaged from the ocean floor.
The furniture is either one-of-a-kind or limited edition with an eye toward sustainability and re-using industrial waste in a creative way. The unique designs combine traditional cabinetmaking with an art deco and steampunk aesthetic, making us wish we knew how to wield a blowtorch as well as Slootweg does.
