Discarded Laptop Keyboards Make Surprisingly Chic Lounge Chairs

Designers Dante Bonuccelli and Lamm have created a unique armchair with the back made of computer keys. The keys work like beads that massage your back and add comfort as you lounge.

As to where the re-used material came from? "The project requires keyboards of the same type and dimension," Lamm explains. "Through DAGAD, we came into contact with VOICE SYSTEMS, a company offering IT support to users with visual disabilities. This company develops and produces a machine for the automatic reading of printed texts, known as VOICEbox. The device is integrated with a laptop, from which the keyboard is removed, as it has a numeric keyboard that is easier to use for those with visual disabilities."

Brilliant idea of recycling and remodeling.
