We recently stumbled upon some fantastic sustainable design work coming out of Chicago.  If you live in the Chicago area or will be in the area anytime soon you defiantly need to make a stop at Wreck Creation located at 1659 N. Halsted St. in Chicago.  Furniture designer/Wood Artist Neil Galati is doing some amazing work and breathing new life into otherwise discarded objects.  The treasures you will find at Wreck Creations are made by surgically deconstructing old furniture and vintage items.  Neil then uses those items for inspiration for his creations.  He has transformed vintage objects into beautiful furniture, wall art, mirrors, accessories, and even pet beds!  He states that he does not have predetermined designs that he finds materials to construct, but to use the materials he has, let them speak to him and create from there.  On the Wreck Creations website Neil states that “at the end of the process I see the piece for the first time and I’m amazed at the direction it led me.”  So next time you are in the area pop on by and be amazed by his work as well.  It really is one of a kind, sustainable design.
