Gallery: Oil Barrels Transformed Into Colorful Chic Cabinets

 

Here at Inhabitat we love stumbling across re-purposed objects. And appropriation is even sweeter when something destructive is transformed into a useful piece of design, like these colorful Oil Barrel Cabinets designed by German design group Lockengeloet. Using old barrels that have reached the end of their useful life – no longer leak proof – the Hamburg-based designers have taken to remodelling the form to give each barrel a new career as an eye-catching cabinet equipped with a set of sleek shelves set on the inside.
