What I love about upcycle design is the fact that people come up with great ideas on how to give discarded objects/items a new life. In the past few months I found so many terrific designs that one can wonder if there could be more fantastic ideas outhere. And why shouldn’t there be, because people design stuff all the time.
Water heater turned into unique bench
Just like the design you’re seeing in this post. A bench made from an old cylindrical, metal water heater and two old wooden chairs. It’s called ‘79°C bench‘ and is designed by Nelly Trakidou from Greece. The cylindrical geometry of the water heater creates the main volume of the bench and the wooden legs that were used are from chairs. The bench is named after the water temperature once it was a water heater. The two things I really love about this bench are the heater’s thermostat, a detail that reminds you of the previous function of the bench. And the bright colors that make you guess what the origin of the item is. Too bad that there’s only one 79°C bench.
