Are you planning to do a general household cleaning soon? Hold on, do not throw away your loose pieces of junk!

You might want to take a peek on these creations by a famed designer in Manila, Russell Von Tero Villafuerte, that started his ‘abuBOT’ Junkart key-chain line. The best part is they’re 100% made from recycled materials.

Russell Von just finished designing his newly-built condominium unit located in an upscale neighborhood when he saw the little pieces of thrash that are about to be thrown away.

An Interior Designer by profession, he thought there’s someing more he could do with those loose pieces. He collated junk pieces of loose screw, broken jewelry, hose connectors and wooden doors that created his masterpieces.

He proudly calls his masterpieces some sort of ‘abuBOT’ junkart.

Collecting these unique materials won’t seem to be a hindrance for Russell Von since he is a self-confessed hoarder. He enjoys what he does and it shows in his creations.

Russell Von said his creations are hard to duplicate since every piece is not only made from scratch but the materials are made from unexpected pieces, he’ll never know what kind he’ll find next.

Take a peek into his collection with a variety of tiny artisan robots with a detailed name for each.
