The 'de_escalator' is a bench design that makes use of escalator stairs in order to repurpose the metal objects into something useful rather than allowing them to otherwise go to waste.
Created by Vienna, Austria-based design company gabarage, the 'de_escalator' benches are inherently durable thanks to the metal design that they have. Moreover, they could be utilized in public spaces without worry that they might become damaged or ruined. Best of all, the design of the 'de_escalator' bench identifies how something old can be transformed into something modern and useful with just a bit of ingenuity and dedication to innovation.
The sturdy furniture created from escalator parts could make a great addition to a modern living space such as a loft to provide an ultra-modern and upcycled space to sit.
