Student Designs Chair Full of Garbage


Collin and I were so excited by the student work on show at ICFF; Nick Demarco of the California College of the Arts produced a wonderful (and surprisingly comfortable) XS chair that can be filled with anything you have in excess- old clothes, magazines or in this case, garbage and bottles. The prototype is made of vinyl, but Nick says the production models will be made of a recycled plastic mesh.

Hit the jump to see a video of Nick describing the chair, a close up of all the garbage inside it, and another video of Professor Corey Jones describing the project.

CCA Professor Corey Jones told us that it was part of a project to "bring sustainable design to Wal-Mart", and describes a few of the other projects.
