Comments Off on Object Guerrilla’s Flat-Pack Lounge Chair Can Be Assembled in a Snap Using Zip Ties

Flat-pack furniture  has taken the furniture market by storm, but not everyone’s a fan of fumbling around with tiny hex keys to assemble their furnishings. That’s why OpenDesk and Baltimore-based Object Guerrilla have developed the Zip Tie Lounge Chair, a new flat-pack offering that can be assembled with 44 zip ties in a matter of minutes. The simple wooden frame requires just 16 square feet of plywood and can be cut on a CNC router in less than an hour. OpenDesk’s platform allows users to download the plans for free, or use the OpenDesk network to contract a local fabricator to produce the chair in kit form. The chair takes advantage of the flexibility inherent in zip tie joinery to create an articulated hammock of seating panels that conforms to the body. Materially efficient, it leverages the power of the web to design globally and distribute locally, slashing the carbon footprint. + Object Guerrilla The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Artisan Furniture Made From Pieces of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge

Bulan founded the Golden Gate Bridge Furniture Company in 1996, after having purchased 2,557 feet of weathered railing from the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District.

Comments Off on How the Media Dropped the Ball on the Solar Trust of America Story

When news broke earlier this week that Solar Trust of America (a big solar company backed by the US Department of Energy) had filed for bankruptcy, conservatives predictably took to the airwaves to denounce the Obama administration’s energy policy. “Another $2 billion of taxpayer money lost on solar companies,” read one headline . “Another Obama Solar Company Goes Bankrupt … Taxpayers Lose $2 BILLION?” screamed another . The only problem? Solar Trust of America never took the money .

Ithaca Turns Dog Poo Into Compost

Comments Off on Ithaca Turns Dog Poo Into Compost

Dog litter bin photo from Shutterstock In the U.S., approximately 78 million dogs leave behind 10.6 million tons of dog waste each year. Three years ago a park in Ithaca, NY launched a plan to lessen that environmental impact by composting dog waste. Now the first batch of dog poo compost is complete after 18 months. The results are, literally and figuratively, mixed: 12 tons of dog waste have been diverted from landfills, yet the end product is only two truckloads of compost – not enough to sustain the program through sales.

Comments Off on Floris Hovers’ No Glue No Screw Flat Pack Stools are ‘Wrapped’ in Rope

Dutch designer Floris Hovers created his surprisingly simple ‘Wrapped’ stools out of a few pieces of wood with biodegradable rope wrapped around them. The word ‘Wrapped’ is a translation of the Dutch word ‘ Ingewikkeld ‘, which means both ‘wrapped’ and ‘complicated’ in one single word – a nod to Hovers’ fixing technique.
