Colorful Eco Chairs Created from Recycled Castoffs

Old chairs are given new life by using discarded telephone wire to reweave the seats. The result is a colorful, sturdy treatment that resolves the problem of a seatless chair.

The design is from The Netherlands’ Tineke Beunders and would be most useful for chairs that originally had woven cane or rush seats, but might also be used to refurbish other seat types. It is, very simply, a new combination of material and use. This re-purposing is a type of recycling that saves old furniture as well as unwanted or disused phone wire from discard.
