The Open Tap Project is comprised of furniture that is surprisingly clean and contemporary despite the industrial material they are made out of. One of the pieces, the MT 01 table, recently received some attention, but the collection also features some equally newsworthy designs, all of which were crafted using metal black pipes.

Created by DOSUNO Design, the Open Tap Project prides itself on the development of sustainable furniture. In addition to using repurposed pipes, each piece requires minimal materials and manpower to make. The MT 01 table is assembled without screws or adhesives. The ET 01 shelf easily adapts to multiple situations and requires no complex or permanent installation. Lastly, the ST 03 chair can be woven without technical skills or specialized tools.
