Deutsch First, we had some holiday somwhere around Katowice, Poland, and well, they make use of pallets for furniture stuff there, too. Second, some people here at home at “Utopiastadt” do some nice and creative stuff, and i’d love to join in, but there’s also still some stuff to do here. But nevertheless, some third-hand-inspirations. One of the beautiful, flower-decorated polish pallet benches and – simply made – tables that […]

Deutsch Very simple, but charming despite of, or actually because of that: the pallet bench/tablöe combination i saw outside Wuppertals Utopiastadt (“Utopia Town”, link in german), an alternative work/life area in an abandoned railway station. The palette bench is composed with (well, many) plain and simple stacked pallets, so is the table – two pallets of a somehow unfamiliar variety (they remind me of the U.S. pallet with continuous surface […]

I was there mostly because of internet- and socio-political reasons and issues and because of my general interest in fine people doing cool stuff with all kinds of electrical/electronical/other equipment, but as it happens, i also observed a quite pretty and very comfortable outdoor couch made of euro pallets there. Raw material: quite a […]

Deutsch Between all the cuddly furniture stuff, a few pictures out of the RPG/LARP corner. What do you do when you like movies like Mad Max and role-playing games like Shadowrun? Those true at heart and strong at will build their own post-apocalyptic scenario and use it for play, fun and party. In such a way, the Gran Paradiso Roadhouse Club was built by some of my ex-colleagues and when […]

Deutsch A known phenomenon: when you start to work with pallets, you start to see them anywhere, I had a pallet glassed look through my neighbourhood already, and still i found quite a lot more pallet furniture just a short walk away. First, the “Kugelpudel” – in german, its the rhyming translation of “ball poodle”, selling the best icecream i ever had, with its upcycled furniture. Then, there was the […]

Deutsch I moved back to Bochum again and take it as a good sign that just right after moving into my new home, i spotted some pallet benches right around there. They were not built in a way i would have built them, but nevertheless (or just because of this) I’d like to show those here, too, for they’re quite nnice and in a somehow very purist style. Also there […]
