We are living in the era where we are made to think about the environment: how it is being affected by our ways of living and how we can contribute in our small way to preserve it. Recycling is the way to living and it is a well-known term to the generation today. One such product which can be revamped into something really appealing to the eye but we end up trashing it, is the old steel drum or an empty oil drum. These drums can be altered into various things like musical instruments, barbeques and waste bin but the latest conversion is into a piece of an arty furniture which can give a rugged and a new look to your place. Designed by Stanker, these stunning pieces make great furniture for any house.
The creative mind behind this artistic and useful art is a French designer Francois Royer. He sells this art under the brand name Stanker.
Stanker design started the magic of turning old, waste steel barrels into amazing furniture since 2003. Ever since, he has been designing these eco-friendly furniture out of the oil barrels and amazing the world by his idea. Taking recycling to a completely new level, Francois Royer has recycled this waste treasure into tables, chairs, barbecues, shelves and lights. His latest collection consists of unique seatings that go by names “Eazy Bang Bang”, the “Bronx 8 electric chair”, “U-Zeen Comfort Rocker” and “Nelson”. The collection also includes “Crush Table”, a table made by crushing steel drum, which is brushed and repainted. It includes Plexiglas plate and rubber wheels. The stunning “Darleen Stockings Table” is another beauty to make the range even more rocking.
