'The 1/2=1' by Tess Hill is a piece of recycled art that has a new function. Instead of throwing away old chairs, Tess has severed them, flipped them upside and mounted them to the wall. Tess Hill is a Spanish designer and artist who has taken this old conventional chair, and altered it into a hanger for clothes. This wall hook has two posts to hang clothes or hat accessories, and the sturdy middle platform can support a multitude of objects ranging from books to flower pots.
Hill does an incredible job of transforming a standard piece of furniture into a completely new product with a different function. As our society becomes more waste cautious this idea for recycling furniture has come at the perfect time. It is both an interesting innovation and an eco-friendly product that prevents garbage.
