Projects featured include Australian design studio Lightly's interception of used car tires that turns the tires into lounge chair furniture by crocheting around them in unique and colorful nylon patterns.

A reinvention of discarded glass vases, jugs, bowls, and mugs into sculptural chandeliers by Utrecht-based designers Atelier Remy and Veenhuizen.

Israeli-based Reddish Studio's reinvention of discarded chair, stool, and table legs into the base of new desk lamps, and Miami artist Agustina Woodgate's "animal skin rugs" — which focus on abstracted colors and patterns hand-sewn out of disassembled, pre-loved stuffed animal toys.

Up-Cycle! is both a celebration of the creative spirit and an inspiration book for any DIY inventor possessing the ambition to repurpose unused sources into new and unexpected pieces of art.
