The design world's been affected by many movements, from the streamlined homegoods of the Art Deco '30s, to the futuristic neon and glass of 1950s Googie, to the Pontiac Aztek of the lauded 1990s Bowel. For furniture establishing its own movement -- farmpunk! -- check out Unite Two Design.
UTD's a band of artisans holed up in the Lehigh Valley and central NY who snag anything they can find from farms and residential/ industrial sites, and craft it into furniture/ home accessories that pull from the "past, present, and future", a movement they're calling farmpunk, which previously was just focused on growing Clash crops. Behold the highlight reel:
This table/ lamp/ planter hybrid's comprised of a roller wheel off a mower, bits of a cattle trough, and pipes sourced from an old dairy farm corral, though is luckily better than just OK.
A two-seat face-to-facer, this barn-beamed bench's supported by a mix of silo bands and a bulldozer sprocket, with a back formed from an old steel wagon wheel and a retired stop sign, which on its last day received a gold watch...for children sign.
Seemingly bending the laws of physics, this six-bottle beam-and-pipe wine rack's overloaded to the right and uses a single link from a Great Lakes sailing ship anchor chain as a counterweight, also what Louie Anderson calls the extra pounds he puts on, from eating counters.
There're plenty more projects coming, as they've got a healthy supply of old machinery and reclaimed drainage pipes, which were thankfully spared from any of your own future movements.
