This steel side table from Stacklab is more than just a sculptural furniture pieceā€”it puts a fragment of Toronto's history in your home.

For more than a century, The Garrison Road Bridge at Fort York stood strong, but it was recently demolished as part of a new revitalization project for the area. Fortunately, rather than seeing the bridge's materials go to waste, a company by the name of Rebart was able to collect the steel so that it could be repurposed by multidisciplinary design studio STACKLAB.

'The Garrison' is the name of the revitalized steel, which takes the form of a low side table or seat that can be used either indoors or outside. In total, there are only 102 castings that have been produced in either iron or iron with bronze.
