Without actually being made out of the metal in its name, the Reinier de Jong STEEL Chair is a rustic piece of furniture that uses only wooden materials.
The appeal of the natural materials of the chair is only increased when you find out that the entire chair is made out of old broom handles. Taking tools such as rakes, shovels, brooms and other tools with wooden handles that have been used and discarded, the Dutch designer creates something new and once again, useful. He shaves down the handles, cuts them up to size, and cuts sides to make flat and comfortable seating surfaces.
The Reinier de Jong STEEL Chair also comes in a painted version.
