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.”
Frames taken from chairs with damaged backs and seats were combined with parts from chairs that could not be sold, resulting in a haphazard look that recalls Frankenstein’s monster, and creating a new, fun, and functional place to sit. All of the material used for these chairs was originally destined for the landfill.
