A recycled office

The second post on today’s theme of “Wow, that is cool!” is about an amazing office that I found last week on Recyclart. This artist cut up and painted multiple damaged tables to create the most ingenious office shelving I have ever seen. For a relatively low cost, this artist created a one-of-a-kind organized workspace:

Proof that interesting, functional, organized, and amazing design doesn’t have to be expensive.

    however, i fear the desk may be a bit too distracting for my personal work environment tastes.

    It’s beautiful, creative and unique. I love it. But whether it’s inexpensive or not depends on where you live. In my city, used furniture is much more expensive than new, even at thrift stores and garage sales. Sigh.

    Wow, that is incredible! I love it! I would like to see a picture with it being used and the ‘shelves’ fuller. I imagine it would be so interesting looking.

    It is definitly creative, but doesn’t look that good, in my opinion. Also, having 2 coffee table legs on my work surface would be a pain in the butt. However, certainly interesting idea that could be improved upon.

    Looks great and it’s also good to the wallet and the earth, if only I had the time, energy, creativity, or space to do something like this.

    Neat-o! and…why do I think is what the Mad Hatter’s desk/office would look like in “Alice In Wonderland”…if he had/has a desk/office…

    That is so coo! So creative. That is art, and yet it’s functional. I’m so impressed!

    That is insane and hilarious. I immediately thought of using that approach in a kitchen, but my cats would love it anywhere.

    What about cutting down the legs of the upper tables so that the shelves are closer together?
    Then you wouldn’t need a ladder to access the upper shelves!

    Love the concept. It looks like a multitude of tables but some are ripped lengthwise.

    Still, I hate white walls!

    Garbage+imagination=a winning combination.
    This one is a Scavenger Trophy!

    WOW, I love this. I like how all the colors are the same on each piece. I’ve seen an old kitchen table cut in two and both sides are on the wall for a buffet type server but this is really nice.

    I’m with @Amy. Interesting concept, not sold on the execution.

    sooo cool! I love it. I want to do it in red.

    It’s cool if it isn’t in my house. I think it looks like garbage on the wall…painted purple.

    I. Love. It!!!! I would have never thought of this. It’s a stroke of genius.

    Oooh, I love that idea of sawing a table in half or even smaller. I think that would work better/be cheaper for my planned renos than my original idea of getting a counter custom cut!

    Love the daring purple!

    Incredibly creative. Love it.

    Funnily enough, glancing first at the picture, I thought, “wow, that’s cool!” and then continued on to the text. Well, it certainly elicits the proper response. 😀
