Traffic Signs Transform into Art


"Transit Chair" This recycled metal chair has been hand-fabricated and is made out of re-purposed steel traffic signs, champagne corks and steel hardware. $1100

Metal designer Boris Bally from Providence, Rhode Island, demonstrates in his art forms that sustainability has no limits. His furniture are true conversation pieces for those who are collectors of art. They have a colorful, bold and dynamic "raw American street aesthetic" that can only be described as "graphic furniture art." Not only does he create furniture, he also designs home accessories, jewelry and tableware. Besides incorporating salvaged street signs into his designs, Bally also re-purposes other materials such as weapon parts and various found objects.
