People have been making car furniture for years, changing the original function of the part to something else. V8 engine blocks have provided a good base for car furniture as coffee tables, but to stand out now requires much more.
TinMan Gallery in Israel have gone much further and created some beautiful pieces from various car parts. Founded in 2011 by Ronen Wasserman aka TinMan, after he left his job as a senior engineer in high-tech company. He followed his dreams and passion and established the studio near Tel-Aviv where he started to play with car parts and created functional art and car furniture.
