Creativity is the quantum leap of awareness that connects-the-dots and lets us see past preconceptions and into a realm of new territory. Such is the idea behind things like permaculture, adaptive reuse and just generally reusing old things to make new and unexpected objects. Hong Kong based KaCaMa Design Lab (previously) now brings us Stool ZERO, a stylish stool made from landfilled ventilator fans and scrap wire.

Colourfully hand-woven with lengths of plastic wire casing (the copper was taken out and reused elsewhere), the fans' wire cages are sourced from a local recycling center.

The plastic casing serves to give the seating a bit of cushioning, while also providing some eye-catching patterns to decorate the metal cage. No word on where the wood comes from, but it looks like regular, dimensional pine lumber.

We've also seen junked fans turned into beautiful lighting; after all, there's something versatile about that rounded form and convenient metal grille that probably has many more creative reuse possibilities waiting to be discovered... More over at KaCaMa Design Lab .
