London Design Festival: Prostheses & Innesti at Gallery Fumi

Featured on Dezeen this morning, the pieces in this exhibition at Gallery Fumi were made by construction workers, before being embellished by Brazillian architect Marcio Krogan of Studio MK27. The collection was produced in collaboration with Italian architects Manuela Verga and Paolo Boatti.

Every single piece exudes rustic charm: they’re all made from materials found on the construction sites of some of Krogan’s projects. The lamps, iPod docks and tiles were added on later by the architects.

The contrast between the rough, solid looking construction of the pieces and the quaint embellishments is wonderful – this is upcycling done very, very well.

The exhibition runs until 30 November, but after today is by appointment only.
