Recycled Artwork Finds New Life

Modern Decor

Recycled Flip table front/side view

Dubbed “the recycled flip” because of the conspicuous table top that forms a sharp 90 degree angle turning into a half shelf upon completion of its “flip”…Mechanik Design’s Effie Bouras had this constructed of recycled steel -recycled because its previous life was as scrap for an art sculpture, now finding a new use as a console.


Edges are sharp, joints are grounded down to a smooth finish so transition from vertical supports to horizontal supports are seamless and do not reveal attachment points, or betray it’s past life as fine art…

Shelf Detail Grounded Joinery
