Recycled waste material Chairs by Richard G Liddle

A new and innovative event has just taken place in the UK as part of the Design Council’s festival. The event was created by Richard Liddle of Cohda design and ran from the 20-28 of October. As the event began, onlookers saw very little-only machinery and open space. As members of the public brought in their trash which consisted of mainly plastics, a great change was witnessed by all. Sustainable plastic designs were being born from the public’s recycled rubbish. The event from Cohda became the life of the festival. On the last day of the festival, winners were picked randomly to take home pieces of the designs.

Conolounge Recycled Paper Tubes Chair

For a chair prototype called the Conolounge, Chilean designers Onceneto tapped La Tercera newspaper for leftover paper printer rolls. A steel support provides structure and adds a fetching bright green accent. It’s a clever example of creative reuse that reminds us of a less conceptual and more practical version of Julian Lwin’s Biotube Bench.

I saw this on the blog, It was an entry in the "Design a Champagne Chair" sponsored by Veuve Clicquot. Father's Day is coming soon…. As I always say, "Chair and chair alike."

transplastic – exhibition of recent work by the campana brothers

recent work by the campana brothers 5 june – 10 august 2007 albion gallery, london the transplastic series tells a fictional story: in a world made of plastic and synthetic matter, a fertile ground is laid for transgenic creations. natural fibres recover the plastic as in an immunological response: nature grows from the plastic and overpowers it. this collection encapsulates many concepts explored throughout the campana’s trajectory; revisiting material clashes with a more mature approach. it refers back to the premise, used in 2000 with the ‘shark chair’, to challenge contrasts: of nature and plastic, cold and warm, textured and smooth surfaces. at the end of 2005, the preceding years of research evolved in an organic fashion by transforming into a collection of 31 prototypes that are to be displayed for the first time at albion gallery in london.
