Welcome to The Art of Industrial.


Today, each of our hand-picked historical relics carries the marks of time, weathered and well-earned through years of usage. These nicks, scars, and wear infuse them with character and personality, rendering them perfectly imperfect. In our workshops, we carefully renew and redesign each piece by hand, breathing new life into them so that they may once again serve, as stunning, functional furniture or decor. They are reworked to perfection. After being reimagined, repurposed, and revived, they are soon to be cherished and admired once more. 


Many of these relics hold not only a great historical importance but they’re also often cherished, having a significant personal-value to both us and our clients. When a connection is made, often through learning about the fascinating history behind a piece or the meticulous restoration process needed to revive it, a remarkable bond is formed. Initially driven by curiosity and joy, this bond evolves and deepens, instilling a profound sense of pride in ownership and an enduring appreciation for the craftsmanship involved. We’ve been told, and must admit ourselves, that it becomes both an intellectual and an emotional attachment, one that makes parting ways particularly challenging when the time comes. Consequently, many of our pieces become treasured family heirlooms, passed down from one generation to the next. This sentiment resonates strongly, especially among individuals or families who possess a genuine appreciation for our shared history and / or just a passion for exceptional design.


In fact, some may even regard these pieces as objects of affection, as the desire to touch, work with, or simply run one’s hand across them becomes irresistible. There is an inherent allure and mystique surrounding many of these items, a rarity in a category where pieces are typically admired for their rugged and sturdy, rough and tough nature. However, through careful design and meticulous rework, each item is crafted to exude its own uniqueness, possessing a distinctive appeal that arouses a curiosity and invites the touch, the use, and the respect it deserves. Each piece hints at a captivating story waiting to be unveiled, to be told, and to be cherished.
