Michael Konstantin Wolke Upcycles Found Objects to Create Beautifully Designed Furniture, Lighting, and Storage

Light shades made from recycled corrugated cardboard.

Expandable shelving and bench storage made from patched bicycle tubes.

A wall-mounted storage basket constructed from a salvaged shopping cart.

Urban seating made from steel and mesh fencing.

Cologne-based designer Michael Konstantin Wolke upcycles found objects, converting them into new works that are as equally functional as stunning. My favorite by far is his expandable wardrobe made from patched bicycle innertubes that have been wrapped around a solid metal frame. This is genuinely brilliant work and I can’t wait to see what he cobbles together next. (via de|zine)
