Shopping Cart Furniture by Etienne Reijnders
Disused and abandoned supermarket shopping trolleys always seem to have an air of melancholy about them, especially if they reside on the bottom of a canal. Dutch designer Etienne Reijnders has decided to breathe new life into old trolleys by refashioning them into sofas and chairs. The end products are surprisingly elegant and sculptural, even if they don't look like the most comfortable chairs to sit on. At least you won't need a £1 coin to unlock them.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
Founded by furniture designers Josefine Krabbe Munck, Kamma Rosa Schytte, Kasper Kyster and Lærke Ryom, Ukurant showcases experimental products from emerging designers which straddle the border between art and commerce.
