Colorful Upcycled Seating

The Mousso Koroba Rocking Chair is Made Out of Plastic Bags

— January 24, 2011 — Eco
As much as plastic bags are the bane of the environment right now, it's pretty amazing how many things can be made with them, including this Mousso Koroba Rocking Chair. This colorful, upcycled lounger is crafty, eco-friendly and pleasant to look at.

Designed by Kix Studio, the Mousso Koroba Rocking Chair was created specifically for Malians. Considering that they don't have the luxuries that we have in America, his chair symbolizes entertainment, rest, necessity and more. Since the chairs are made by Malians themselves, its production promotes skill-building and positive attitudes.
