Filippo Capula lives in Brooklyn, operates a metal/wood-working shop on Long Island City, and is part of 5 Flights Up: we found him on Etsy, when we came across his Panka Indoor/Outdoor Bench. The Panka Bench features reclaimed barn wood and recycled steel pipes hand bent with an oxygen/acetylene torch. Each bench is made to order; custom sizes are available as well (the one shown below measures 60 inches long, is 22 inches wide, and costs $485 through Etsy). See more of Capula’s offerings at Etsy.
