Metal Stoolen Table

The Metal Stoolen table is made of locally collected scrap material found from making other metal products. Designer Bill Hilgendorf’s love for found objects brought this pieces to life. For Bill, every process creates some kind of scrap; the key is to find a product that can utilize the increasingly small pieces that result.

In this case, different length of scraps, when cut down to the same length and grouped haphazardly, the scraps produced a dynamic pattern filled with what the Japanese call “empty space”—negative space that is as important as the solid materials themselves. The bright powder coating protects the metal and highlights the relationship between the object and the empty space that surrounds it.
