Crazy Ray, for the second year in a row, has put up a remarkable display of seating furniture made from auto scrap at the Artscape Festival in Baltimore City. The three designers from Crazy Ray – Renee Tantillo, Peter Boyce and Andrew Yff – have creatively recycled old auto parts and transformed them into awesome lounging furniture and seating with an automotive theme.
Each piece is a visual treat and a piece of art that can be admired and used for lounging with its comfortable design. A lot of the old auto materials like car hoods, and backseats were donated and them meticulously put together by expert metalworkers. Among the various pieces, there is a chair with a striking backside made out of rear view mirrors. There is another lounge set comprising of a table made out of a repurposed BMW hood and the chair made out of an old leather seat with a steel back – very creative indeed!
Using old chunky parts of cars and using them to create great furniture is a great way to reduce carbon footprint. The Artscape Festival is a good way of putting across the ‘green’ message in an artistic manner – showing that old things do not necessarily have to be discarded.
