Bike Wheel Clock [5]

This cool clock by stuffmadefromstuff [5] was made from an old recycled aluminum bike wheel. The wheels are used and will, according to the maker, and show signs of past use, scratches, dings, etc. To get rid of some of the grime, each wheel has been scrubbed and cleaned up.

Clojo – Toilet Paper Hanger [7]

One of those ideas that we wish we had come up with. Studio Stallinga [7] invented a clever and minimalistic way to reuse of clothes hangers to hold good old toilet paper — they call it Clojo [7].

Aquarium Phone Booth [8]

With the rise of the mobile phone, old phone booths have come in the market for reuse. Artists Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino [8] turned one into an aquarium for the Lyon Light Festival in France. Speaking about their design, “With the advent of the mobile telephone, telephone booths lie unused. We rediscover this glass cage transformed into an aquarium, full of exotically colored fish; an invitation to escape and travel.”

A canned classic, Heinz Baked Beans [9]‘ tins are transformed into bold and retro lighting fixtures by FUSE. The lights also come with matching ceiling roses made from recycled tuna cans.

Kudos to all! Seeing ‘trash’ transformed into art and purposeful pieces of everyday design-ware, is just marvelous. And for all you crafters out there, Superuse also let’s you submit your own work or the work of others!
