Tutorials and examples are easy to find to help you make different types of pallet wood furniture. With different results and very different designs, it is usually furniture with a rusty aesthetic that manages to add an informal touch to the decor or is intended as part of the garden and patio furniture.
These results are very distant, Daniel Becker has designed various pallet wood furniture which is distinguished by its simple appearance and refined beauty. which leaves no doubt about the origin of its manufacturing material.
The furniture series 45 was developed for a company based in Berlin. Kimidori is a startup specializing in making furniture from recycled pallets, highlighting Becker’s stylish 45 among its collections.
The collection consists of a stool, sideboard, cabinet and several seats, all created with an approach aimed at achieving visual appeal and a contemporary aesthetic.. One feature that sets Becker’s work apart from most furniture made with this recycled wood is that this designer does not use the structure of the pallet itself to shape the pieces. In this case, the pallet is dismantled to use the wood exclusively as for any other type of raw material.
The different approach proposed by Daniel Becker brings the concept of recycling closer to the general public. Thanks to these designs, there is no need to subordinate the aesthetics of the furniture until the materials are reused for its production.. Pieces can be created as elegant and refined with this and most traditional method. In this way, a greater projection of recycled materials is obtained as a very useful and versatile system for creating furniture and decorative items where beauty should always be present.
The main feature of the design is the display of the different planks in an arrangement that creates angles of 45º and 90º to each other. The benchmark for this simple yet effective design has been the paneling of wooden doors and houses in Eastern and Northern Europe for centuries.. The pallets are taken apart and their woods are swept, sanded and glued to form larger planks which are then attached creating the geometric patterns that shape the furniture.
