The sink itself is a recycled oil sump

Israeli artist Ronen Wasserman turned recycling into an art form. Literally. For the Ronmen TinMan design studio, Wasserman creates on-off furniture pieces from recycled car parts. Says TinMan in its mission statement:

“At the TinMan studio, we are aware that the availability of raw materials is limited.”

A peaceful use

“To promote awareness of smart consumption habits and maximize the resources at hand, we use parts of cars and motorcycles found in junkyards, and transform them into functional, useful products that are used daily.”

“Doing so, we infuse these parts with a second life, while preserving a hint of their glamorous automotive history.”
