Bits of Wood by Pepe Heykoop

Dutch designer Pepe Heykoop has made a series of furniture by casting recycled tin around wooden offcuts.Called Bits of Wood, the stools and table use offcuts from a saw mill and tin from the local recycling facilities.The pieces are packed tightly then fused together with the molten tin, so that the ends of the scrap become part of the seat or table top.Reuse is a key theme in Heykoop’s work, with previous projects incorporating scrap leather and fabric skins for worn-out furniture.
