As part of the London Design Festival, CONTEMPORIST visited the Tent London design event, where British artist Toby Poolman exhibited some wall art and a coffee table he made from various metal parts of an old tractor.

The sculptures, TE 2255557 01 (sculptural coffee table) and TE 2255557 02 (wall piece), have been manufactured from recycled engineering components, sourced from the remains of a vintage Ferguson tractor. Their construction involved the careful deconstruction of the seized up and rusted machine before cleaning, shaping and welding each component into place to create a contemporary and intracate form. Each piece has been coated with a protective finish to preserve the aged surfaces of the pieces, the titles of which refer to the serial number of the machine from which they were constructed.
