This modern furniture art project by Ramon Coronado was inspired by the challenge of turning an everyday object into a new everyday object. For the project, referred to as Mercado Negro (meaning Black Market), Coronado chose a grocery cart and, amazingly, transformed it into a seat and table. And, perhaps just to show off, he made a swing and a lamp too.

Mercado Negro is a great example of potential ecological solutions for leftover objects from everyday life. For more photos of the transformation behind Mercado Negro, check out the links below.
