Ultra Cool Hand-Made Robots By Bennett Robot Works

These amazing robot sculptures are the creation of Gordon Bennett.  They are all made from a mixture of found objects which are both old and new.  The parts are salvaged from various places including garbage dumps, basements, construction sites and garage sales.

They are inspired by Norman Bel Geddes and Raymond Lowey whose visions of the “Modern Age” helped shape industrial design of the 40’s and 50’s.  The materials used are wood, metal, bakelite, glass, plastic, rubber and paint.  Each robot is a unique, one-of-a-kind sculpture and receives its own numbered metal tag as proof that it’s an authentic Bennett Robot Works robot.

Each robot takes about a month to build.  They range in height from 14″ to 29″.  There are no moving or battery operated parts.  Despite their whimsical appeal they are not meant to be a toy.

We just went to their site and found out that they are completely sold out of all current inventory.  On top of that they are completely sold out of their $50 posters.  Yes, they are popular and hard to get!

Head on over to their website HERE to see their extensive and impressive collection of robots or if you have specific questions you  can simply e-mail them at gordon@bennettrobotworks.com.
