These chairs were designed for a café inside of Idée, a store that specializes in furniture and interior goods. Their request was something that used old or damage goods with a theme of “Reuse, Recycle, Upcycle, and D.I.Y.”
These drawers from damaged furniture have been repurposed into chairs by adding backs to them. The size of the drawer determines the type of seat, and with wide drawers, even benches are possible. Though the drawers were taken from a wide variety of items, the height of each seat is the same, giving them a sense of uniformity. These were created so that anyone could reproduce them on their own.
