Debuting at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair, Dutch designer piet hein eek‘s reclaimed steel tube furniture is a simple design that activates negative space by joining hollow tubes. The old pipes used to construct these pieces were salvaged by the designer last year while he was renovating an older building into his new studio. Prior to the renovation, the building housed an overwhelming amount of this tubing, and although the team had to discard many of the tubes, they were able to salvage a great deal of the material to be used to create a range of furniture objects.
