While bowling and high design might not often have the opportunity to intersect, William Stranger’s “Second Life” project proves to be an exception to the rule. Using reclaimed wood from a local LA bowling alley, Stranger has created a number of different of interesting pieces that include a coffee table, bench and diptych. Beyond their inherent sustainability, the work maintains the right combination of kitsch mixed with clean lines, resulting in a lighthearted, but beautiful collection. “Second Life” will be displayed until November 14th at the Fifth Floor Gallery in Los Angeles.
