London artist Peter Marigold created his QOW table designs using leather production discards from Italian fashion house Fendi. He used the rules of tessellation so that every piece in his work used common angles and would fit together perfectly.

The QOW table design was built from leather-covered metal pieces assembled into a long sculptural structure. Because the pieces will always fit, size is limited only by imagination and available materials.

Implications - Reusing old materials like these leather leftover table tops do demonstrate that up-cycling and recycling products can be just as cool as creating new ones. Granted, many companies won't necessarily be using Fendi's leftover leather to create their products, but companies can still create stylish, up-cycled products.
