You know by now that products made from recycled parts and goods makes the WHOA! team sparkle with happiness, and these awesome furniture pieces made from auto and motorcycle parts did just that. Israeli recycling artist Ronen Wasserman of design studio Ronmen TinMan creates high-end furniture from old cars and bikes. The Volvo Washing Station, the Toyota Tailgate Cabinet and glass shelves fitted into a bent BMW hood are just some of the goodies Wasserman has to offer. Upcycling is the process of taking something old and instead of recycling it into a hunk of metal or plastic that can be melted and reused for another purpose, upcycling sees the re-invention of an old item or part into something new – a wonderful way to reduce landfill mass. Wasserman’s work is self-described as greatly influenced by his background in mechanical engineering, and he enjoys “giving a ‘front seat’ to the more minor aspects of these automobile parts, making sure every ounce of potential is squeezed from each one”. We applaud the artist for the creativity and determination it takes to reuse parts to create something new, instead of finding new raw material to work with.
