One can never cease to be surprised by how many different objects can be converted into something else entirely, serving a different purpose than its original shape was meant for; case in point is the Propane Tank Bench. This public seating makes shipping pallets and cardboard seem like the most natural materials to make furniture out of. Completely unique, the Propane Tank Bench offers a new way to look at these gas tanks as well as other industrial products.
Conceived and created by California-based designer Colin Selig, the Propane Tank Bench was the runner-up in the DIY/Hack/Mod category for Care 77 Design Award 2011. Made to fit various body types comfortably, this public bench is curvaceous all-around. This curved shaped also makes the Propane Tank Bench strong and sturdy.
