Gallery: PHOTOS: New Yorkers Bid On Furniture and Art Made from Hurrica...

Boardwalk by Evan Clabots/Nonlinear Studio. Made from shipping pallets that washed up at the docks at the Brooklyn Navy Yard during Sandy, the table bears a resemblance to the beloved boardwalks that were lost in the storm. The dowel pins follow the nail holes that originally held the pallets together, celebrating the inconsistency and character of the wood.

Faith (8/66) by Suzanne Tick. Tick was going to throw away a 1966 Richard Schultz outdoor chaise that was damaged on the roof of her studio until she was inspired to refurbish the chair for Reclaim NYC.

UM Project‘s Apres 1 lamp is made of a rusty steel base salvaged at the Token shop in Red Hook after the storm, a repurposed brass shade from one of UM’s LUM lamps, and left-over ash wood from other recent projects.

Stick-Lights by Lindsey Adelman Studio. Lighting pieces made from reclaimed Cyprus branches.

Uprooted by Dror. Uprooted is a haunting image of NYC through Dror’s eyes after the hurricane.
