Trolling the bar scene at Melbourne's Raising the Bar, we find the Offcut Stools by Edwards Moore Architects. They are part of an exhibition of works made from "hard rubbish finds, found objects or the reuse of existing materials" displayed at a working bar.raising the bar edwards moore chairs photo closeup

The designer writes:

As part of the State of Design festival 2010 we designed & made some bar seats using reclaimed material for a working licensed bar. The main material is sourced from timber off-cuts. The tops are finished with linseed oil putty and wax.
