It's quite specific, but the concept is captivating. The Dirk van der Kooij Endless chairs and tables are manufactured out of old refrigerators. Even more interestingly, these unusual items are more or less printed from one man's robot.

The Endless Flow and Endless Pulse series are composed of dining chairs, small children's seating, rocking chairs and even tables. They're all sculpted from repeating patterns of plastic strips that define the modern lines of these singular pieces of furniture.

As of last year, the designer's old automaton could churn out domestic objects at a rate of 4,000 annually, so it would be fascinating to learn the new machine's output. Still, one of the most impressive features of the Dirk van der Kooij Endless Collection is that every piece produced can potentially be made completely unique.
