Adam Barron is a design student at the University of Cincinnati. To showcase to his professors his knowledge of modern design, while retaining the aspects of reusable materials, Barron created this one-of-a-kind seatbelt chair.
The entire chair is made completely from materials that Adam Barron found in a junkyard. Using a few steel rods and a bunch of seatbelts, Barron crafted the reclaimed seatbelt chair. Barron weaved the seatbelts appropriately altering colors so the end result looks professional. The seat is contoured to hold a modern fit and actually feel pretty comfortable.
The seatbelt chair by Adam Barron displays the five Japanese design principles: humor, craftsmanship, compactness, asymmetry and simplicity and the end result is quite astonishing. It would be a safe bet choosing this chair by Adam Barron.
