Cleveland Art creates functional household, shop and hotel furniture from recycled vintage industrial surplus. It seamlessly fits both contemporary and traditional interiors, the combination between simple minimalistic shapes and work worn steel, wood and glass gives the furniture a complete immunity from time. They scream both modern and old simultaneously somehow without competing for which has the loudest voice.
The strange dual life these designs hold continues as you consider that they uncannily resemble minimalist sculptures fit for any art gallery and an old GYM bench or factory employee’s coat hook. This tandem existence is nothing short of genius.
I personally love these designs there is a strong masculinity which is perfect for a city apartment, and could work extremely well in contrasting against feminine designs. With the right use of these the designs you could create a perfect androgynous harmony in a space, or go all out masculine and have your space harder and grittier.
