Functional art made from recycled and industrial materials.

2 Architects and a bunch of time


Steve Buetow and Scott Helmes are award winning architects who were laid off from their architectural jobs. In a creative attempt to utilize their multitude of talents, they created flower vases from test tubes and scrap aluminum and modern tableware from recycled CorianĀ®. Since their initial design, they are continuing to develop unique functional objects and ideas using recycled and industrial materials. Under the rubric of S2BH, who knows what mischief and concepts will emerge?
