Rat Rodding Furniture

While compiling this week’s PSFK design review, we wanted to include one of the most extreme custom cars we’d ever seen as eye candy. The severely chopped 1930 Ford is constructed in the style of a ‘rat rod’. Rat rods appear unfinished but the intention of building a car in this style is to show the idea of function over form. They are partially a reaction to custom cars made to be too pretty and never drove. What turned posting a link about this car into a full story occurred when we saw Design Milk’s report on the furniture being created by one designer from a team known as Men at Work from The Hague.
