Gas & Air Studios collects broken and unwanted pallets from around London and uses them to create new, handmade furniture. The maker only uses pallets that are broken and even recycles the nails after taking them apart. Most of their wood goes into making their well-known, folding table and chair, which are perfect for outdoor settings, lawns and picnics. But even then, Guy Burnett, the man behind Gas & Air Studios, wanted to make the most of any leftover pieces, so he created the XChair, which is a striking seating option made with the thicker parts of a pallet.
Now the company is expanding even further with a new coffee table and stool. The Pallet Coffee Table is a simple and honest use of pallet wood placed on top of four 10mm round bar steel legs. The table can also be custom made with a storage shelf in any length up to 1.2 meters and any width. The Slate Stool is another use of scrap reuse and consists of pallets fastened together and topped with a piece of slate.
Gas & Air Studios featured their furniture in a number of locations over the last year including the Grand Designs Live 2013 at the Excel Center in London, Dwelle in Manchester, The Woods Festival 2013 in Kent and also in Google’s new London headquarters.
