This Design Collection was Created from Leftover Materials and Foil

This aluminum foil furniture collection is made with both functionality and design in mind.

The collection was created by the Detroit-based designer Chris Shanck and is appropriately titled the 'ALUfoil Suite.' It is made up of a variety of items including "arm chairs, consoles, tables, vases, shelves, mirrors, cabinets and benches." While each of the items was constructed in a specific way, no two items are the same with their textured surfaces and asymmetrical designs. The foil furniture collection was created with repurposed industrial materials that were then covered in aluminum foil and painted with resin to keep everything in place.

This unusual furniture collection works to serve as an artistic statement about the future of repurposing in design.
