Comments Off on Aymeric Renoud’s Minimalist ‘R Chair’ Reduces, Reuses, Recycles, and Rethinks Materials

Aymeric Renoud‘s R chair is the first in a series of four furnishings that explore one of the most basic notions of sustainability, the 4R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rethink).The idea for this chair was to adopt a minimalist approach in order to reduce waste and provide material economy without compromising sturdiness, aesthetics and durability. The R Chair features a slender folding frame strung with hand-dyed hemp rope. Material economy helps to reduce the chair’s impact, and the entire piece was assembled by hand and finished with natural materials. Aymeric Renoud created the R Chair for a study project at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design . + Aymeric Renoud The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Reinier de Jong’s STEEL Chair is Made From Recycled Broom Handles

Dutch designer Reinier de Jong gives new life to old broomsticks with his STEEL chair (steel actually means handle in Dutch). Each chair is made from 10 meters of handles that still show traces of their former use. He invites everyone to contribute to the project – you can donate old wooden handles from brooms, rakes, shovels, flagpoles, and banisters as long as they are 28 or 29 mm in diameter. For each usable meter of old handles, Reinier de Jong will donate 1 Euro to charity. + Reinier de Jong The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
