Designers Create Luxury Furnishings from Recycled Waste for Italy's Torre Coccaro 5-Star Hotel

by , 04/25/12

Designed by Stefano Pirovano, and produced by Bysteel, this lightweight dividing screen has been created with recycled aluminium.

Even the hotel’s bathrooms need a sustainable touch. Bathtub Ofurò has been designed by Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez, and produced by Rapsel. The tub is built from natural, untreated larch wood. Next to it are cork stools by Anna Deplano, and beneath it a bathmat is made out of old tractor inner tubes.

‘Exploring’ is a piece of artwork create by Alfredo Gioventù. The artist assembles stones and wood scraps he finds along the seashore.

This old piece of wood has been modeled and worn down by life in the sea. The piece can be mounted to the wall like a beautiful piece of art.

These incredibly sturdy, trunk-like stools have been made by binding different color magazines together.


Even the beautiful rooster sculpture sitting at the entrance of the exhibit has been cleverly crafted using everyday scraps found on the hotel premises.
