Recycled materials are finding their way into some pretty crazy stuff these days. But this one deserves a closer look. This handmade Spiderman end table is a comic-lover’s dream, and it’s all made from recycled car parts.
In their studio in Bangkok, Thailand, the artists behind the Etsy shop Kreatworks transformed scraps collected from cars, motorcycles and other machinery into a metal version of the Marvel hero. The end result is a massive 110-pound giant that’s sure to scare off any bad guys who may try to take over your living room.
This unique table walks the line between art and functionality. The design is surely sculpture-like, but Spidey’s web holds a standard glass tabletop for a dramatic decor statement. The eye-catching table stands about 1 1/2 feet tall and 3 1/2 feet wide, and it’s carefully lacquered to prevent scratches and rust.
In addition to the comic book legend, the scrap geniuses at Kreatworks craft nearly-life-size sculptures of just about anything – ranging from a horse to a pirate captain to a creepy alien. Each piece is carefully assembled from scrap metal, car parts and end-of-life machinery – showing creative skill and green prowess.
If the comic-loving kid inside of you just has to add this Spiderman table to your family room, you’re in luck. You can actually purchase it online at the Kreatworks Etsy shop (just try not to be overwhelmed by the $2,200 price tag). It may be a bit of a splurge, but the piece takes loads of man hours to craft – making the price seem a little more reasonable. Want a closer look?
