skateboard benches

recycled skateboard bench

american company deckstool has developed new furniture seating made from 100% reclaimed broken skateboards. the 48" recycled skateboard deck benches feature a popsicle-shaped seat that use skateboard trucks for their construction. besides being influenced by skate art and culture, deckstool’s designs are based upon how easily skateboards break during use. the company works with independent skate shops and parks in the USA and canada to collect busted boards, giving these small skate-businesses cash back to supplement their income or  to raise money for skate park projects.

  • at least some benefit from old skateboards

    ben says:
  • The bench looks great, but moreover I love the idea that it has been recycled from Skate Boards. I’m a firm believer of recycling waste, and to be able to create something new from broken/damaged items is truly creative!
