Gregg has been creating recycled bicycle furniture since 1990, refining his designs and adding more pieces to his inventory. Each piece has a slick, clean look; a positive image that one would not expect from old bike parts.
His creations also include recycled items from other locomotives. Windows from trains and cars become glass table tops and seat belt webbing is used for upholstery.
|Windows from old cars are reused as glass table tops for coffee tables and bar tables made out of old bicycle wheels. You can just see the spokes of the bicycle wheel through the glass top of this table; an interesting talking point for anyone who's seeing the furniture for the first time.|
Many of these designs can weather a life outdoors as practical and attractive garden furniture. Certainly a topic for conversation, the furniture offers both aesthetic value and functionality.
|The Loveseat is a chair made for two people to sit side by side; a perfect relationship gift for bike-loving couples. To make the arms of the couch, the artist has bent bicycle wheel rims to create a more comfortable shape.|
Gregg offers custom-made options, so a buyer may choose the type and color of upholstery; material variations include rubber inner tubes, leather, clear or colored acrylic, cork and vinyl. Customizable furniture allows the buyer to choose the material of the armrests and the color of the seating. Recycling takes many forms and exciting artworks made from old, unwanted items is becoming more popular. Andy Gregg’s designs are certainly a unique and functional use of old bicycles.
