Nothing is more beautiful than the love that has weathered the storms of life. The love of the young for the young, that is the beginning of life. But the love of the old for the old, that is the beginning of things longer.
-Jerome K. Jerome
Founded on the principles of creativity, exploration and flawless execution, Cast-Off Industrial Designs (C.O.I.D.) produces one-of-a-kind, high-end, functional art created from reclaimed industrial era equipment and artifacts. Lovingly designed and overbuilt, our reimagined “relics” serve as conversation pieces, statement pieces and objects of beauty. Moreover, they have purpose in that they are designed to be functional art.
What exactly is functional art? We define it as any product serving a purpose beyond its role as an object of beauty. Rolling I-beam tables, castered coffee tables, “simple” and “complex” coat racks, display stands, shelving units and bookends are just a few of the products we create.
Our mission statement, “Giving industrial artifacts a place of distinction” is apt, in that we begin with what most would call “rubbish”. Love, patience and dogged determination translate these relics from “trash” to statement pieces; from objects of disdain to objects of desire. Cast-Off Industrial Designs chaperons industrial history from perdition to prominence.
An outgrowth of pent up creativity, Cast-Off Industrial Designs has been established to fill the needs of those looking to set themselves apart with heirloom quality, heritage pieces that create an air of exclusivity, status and prestige. Moreover, owners can pride themselves on the fact that they’ve saved industrial era history from scrap yards, landfills and metal recycling facilities.
Lasting for generations and the focal point of any room:
“Our products are awash with chutzpah, weathered and elegant, flawed but robust”
