The most common piece of furniture that comes to mind when you want to relax is the chair. Coming back from a hard day’s work, the thought of your comfortable chair is one of the only things on your mind. Moreover, if that same chair has something more special about it, it is even better. Designers all over the world are trying to come up with styles that not only drape you in comfort but also have a brand new out-of-the-box look. Some also endeavor to deliver chairs that are environment friendly besides being very relaxing. If you are one of those who are part of the green brigade, then check out some chair designs that demand your attention.
1. The spoon lounge
Although it may not look so but this strange looking chair is very comfortable. It is sturdy with a steel chassis that is draped in Liana vines. The spoon lounge is available in both the natural look and one that is polished neatly with lacquer.
2. Box chair
A creation of Yski design studio, this chair is made of fine tube cardboards held together by metal framed angles. A few other models by Yski are made of solid cardboard pieces and not hollow tubes. These chairs are not only appreciated for being environment friendly, but also for being very versatile, low priced and high value chairs.
3. SIE 43 chair
Pawel Grunet has designed a chair with PET water bottles. The chair rates high on visual aesthetics, but on the utility front it lags behind. The bottles are supported on a steel frame and they can be replaced whenever needed. It was exhibited in the Ecotrans Pop Exhibition, 2009. Despite the publicity, it is still doubtful whether shinny blue furniture piece will find a place in your homes or will be an ornament for exhibitions.
4. Rrround chair
Arttu Kuisma and Janne Melajoki used recycled colorful carpets to make chairs for public space. Their design appealed Swiss designer and Professor Alfredo HÃ¤berli to the extent that they won the Habitare design competition. These chairs can actually become a short-term phenomenon until some more interesting chairs are not designed. The chair resembles a couch whose base box is made of black carpet and the seat has colorful rings creating a maze.
5. Cabbage chair
Ever cut open a cabbage, for sure weâve all done that or at least seen our mothers do it. Some of us have even tried our hands to carefully peeling off every layer to unfurl the cabbage leafs. The cut open cabbage would resemble this chair in all aspects. Made of recycled industrial paper, it is another interesting piece of art. Although the looks would prevent you from seating yourself on it but Nendo, the designer would tell you can sit on it carefree.
