Furniture made of wooden shipping pallets is a seemingly enduring fad, but also is a cliche, our even outdated invention.
But what I love about Berlin-based Daniel Becker, is that he designed this wooden furniture, which looks very exclusively and truly modern. The collection includes stools, cabinets, sideboards, and seating that doesn’t betray its source material at first glance and starts at around $195.
Like the creator says, his approach was to create modern, attractive pieces which do not make use of the pallet as an object but rather work with the used wood of the disassembled pallet. Through the rough usage of the pallets, these boards show signs of use which intruded deeply into the wood and are still visible even after grinding them, distinguishing them clearly from fresh timber.
