RE-sit by Dionysios Skalos
Straight outta Athens! Continuing the grand TreeHugger tradition of creative reuse for automobile seats comes RE-sit from Dionysios Skalos' HARCORE collection. Dionysios takes scrapyard-bound auto seats, as well as some of the car's small electric motors (such as those used for the windshield wipers and windows), and affixes them to a custom aluminum frame. The motors are then hooked up to 12V rechargable batteries and configured to give the chair mobility and automation, including a spiffy footrest that retracts back into the chair.
