Fernando Abellanas is a self-taught designer out of Spain that responded to the current urban space shortage in Valencia by building his own private workspace under a bridge. The furniture designer that practices as Lebrel used a unique crank system with wheels and a sliding base to create a movable workspace platform that can be moved from one side of the bridge to the other. The underpass studio workspace includes a desk, shelves, chair and enough space to hold some knick-knacks, a lamp and enough space to sleep if you want to take a nap, under a bridge, during the day. Is it a little far-fetched to consider building something like this in the United States? Without a doubt. But at the same time, we long to have a hidden workspace under a bridge we could retreat to when the need arises, and Abellanas has delivered on that with his unique floating space under a bridge in Valencia, Spain.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
