If you love thrifting for vintage clothing and second-hand furniture, have we got the thing for you! From local industrial designer Vedat Ulgen of Thislexik, this stool and vase are both made from used clothing purchased from stores in and around Brooklyn. The shape and structure are made possible by way of resin that is left to harden for three days.

The stool is constructed via draped denim and is surprisingly strong, having the capacity to hold up to 450 pounds. The individual pieces of denim selected for the stools have their own unique wear, making each piece a one-of-a-kind handmade work of art.

The vase is made from reclaimed shirt sleeves, and the interior is sealed so the vessel is capable of holding water and flowers.

Vedat is originally from Turkey, and after graduating from Pratt Institute with his degree in Industrial Design, he’s been experimenting with new technologies and materials in unconventional ways.

The stool and the vase are both available for purchase on Uncommon Goods, and you can see more of Vedat’s work here.
