Chilean design studio Losgogo used reinforcing steel and wood to build these items of furniture against the clock (+ slideshow).

Losgogo set themselves a three-week deadline and a restricted palette of materials to create their collection.

"Polígono is a design project with three requirements: two materials, a method and a due date," Nico Aracena, one half of Losogo, told Dezeen.

Steel more commonly used to reinforce concrete was welded into angular shapes and painted bright colours, before sections of wood were added to complete the items.

"The chairs and benches that construction workers spontaneously build on their working sites became our approach," said Aracena.

The result of the time trial was six mirrors and eleven pieces of furniture, including chairs, tables, shelves, a floor lamp and a coat stand.

Triangular, rhomboidal and hexagonal mirrors have simple wood frames stained with softer colours than the furniture.

Other products made out of reinforcing steel we've featured include reinterpreted Chinese screens and a composting shed in Edinburgh.
