Sculptor Bob Campbell, proprietor of Industrial Art Furniture, creates some ultra-cool and ultra-heavy tables and chairs. The designer uses reclaimed metal parts from the area of England in which he lives, which was once a huge steel production and manufacturing centre.

Campbell, who also goes by the name Stig, welds massive steel hooks, chains, tools, wheels and other components together to produce this original furniture stands as a chronicle of a more prosperous time in South Yorkshire.

Implications - Campbell prioritizes the marriage between style and function, claiming that his sculptures extend beyond their practical use. Hoping to send a message and make history with sculptures that stress recycling materials, the sculptures are both aesthetically appealing and environmentally friendly.
