Gallery: Reused Bicycle Inner Tubes Woven into Cool Recycled Bedframe B...

Designed by Ivars Gansons, this cool street bench is a dream for those of us on the look-out for recycled furniture.

Designer Ivars Gansons has turned an old bed frame and a stack of bicycle inner tubes into a beautiful recycled street bench. Each section was inventively created with reused objects interwoven to form a comfy looking seat. The ends of the bench were taken from an antique children’s bed, and the middle section was a former chandelier stand. Gansons welded together each part, then created the meshed fabric out of inner tubes to cover the frame.

The unique design looks quite at home on the street or in the garden, but it could also fit in very nicely in an innovative design gallery as well. The work from the Latvia-based designer just goes to show you that even the most unlikely materials can become awesome designs and interesting furniture pieces.
