Wire Stump Outdoor Furniture by Peter Jakubik

View all 7 Photos

Value is in the imagination, and so it is with Slovakia-based design Peter Jakubik’s Wire Stump Outdoor Furniture. He constructs stools and tables out of bent rebar (the steel bars that are found in reinforced concrete) and oil-coated pinewood. The concept is so simple such that it begs the question, “why didn’t I think of that?” The answer is just as easy: creative genius. The colorful squiggles, somewhat reminiscent of twisted wire coat hangers, form a cage-like structural support for the octagonal plane of wood. Because of its playful pastel shades, the rebar appears to be supple and malleable though the metal retains its physical strength. The bent metal seems to take on a life of its own, twisting and contorting until it reaches a position that is coincidentally perfect for the design of the stool or table. In a functional fashion, the stools are easily stackable, and even a casual stack of three such stools becomes visually appealing and attractive.
