There are very few times in life when telling a designer that their furniture is crap wouldn't be seen as an insult, but this is actually something you can tell British-based design student Sanelisiwe Mafa to her face without hurting her feelings, because she took the unique step of designing a range of sustainable furniture using cow poop as one of the core materials.
Mafa's sustainable furniture makes use of a special blend of cow manure and binding material to create a substance capable of being shaped into an array of forms.
It's important to state that Mafa's poop-derived furniture isn't just some novelty creation, but is eco-friendly because it makes use of a widely available renewable resource, making this a fine example of furniture design pushing the boundaries in search of sustainable style.
