“Reclaimed” is one of those buzzwords that’s come along in the last year or two to described mundane things like dead wood that’s been turned into a high priced consumer good. Think of a tabletop made from “reclaimed wood” and sold at a premium in a bougie furniture store and you get the idea.
French artist Charly Molinelli has taken the “reclaimed” idea to a new level with this (admittedly awesome) Ferrari coffee table made from a vehicle so mangled that we have no idea what kind of Ferrari it started life as. The piece was (obviously) comissioned by a wealthy patron of Molinelli’s and is said to have cost well into the 5-figures. Special wood was also procured to “stay with the concept of recycling.” That strikes us as a bit rich when dealing with a piece like this, but we’re not going to lie and say we don’t want one of these for our living room.
