Dinner Brake

This upcycled tray delivers some delicious design to your green lifestyle. It’s handmade by designer Gilbert VandenHeuvel, an avid cyclist who loves incorporating reclaimed bicycle parts into his furniture and decorative art pieces. Here he uses a round frame that he fills with bicycle gears. The varied sizes and shapes of the gears almost suggest snowflakes, and because VandenHeuvel is using reclaimed materials, no two trays will be alike. Covering the gears is a sturdy circle of tempered glass, and completing the tray are handles made from bicycle brake grips. The tray deftly rides the line between formal functionality and casual design, and lets you celebrate your love of cycling as you serve appetizers at a dinner party or drinks out on the patio. Handmade in Canada.

Gilbert VandenHeuvel

My inspiration comes from the bicycle itself. They are almost begging to be reborn, reshaped into something surprising and beautiful. A bicycle lends itself well to re-purposing: the sexy sprockets, curvy rims, flexible rubber, and sturdy frame make for endless design possibilities. With no formal art or design education, all my pieces are raw imagination with practical structural design all mixed together with my love of bicycles. In the beginning, I started out using only the metal parts of the bike, but I never threw away the other parts since I knew I would use them somehow, someday. Now I'm expanding my design range by weaving, sewing and arranging the tires and inner tubes. collection
