During this year's Seattle Design Festival, greenheads and artists looking to prove their worth were asked to come up with a piece of urban furniture manufactured by putting together a sheet of plywood, some textile material, four pieces of common size dimensional lumber and one item found in an used building supply store.
The list might seem lengthy once you put it on paper, at least for those who have no experience when it comes to carpentry, but the truth is that these materials are close to no resources at all as far as manufacturing pieces of furniture is concerned.
Still, one team took an old radiator and used its parts to come up with a rather innovative lounge chair, whom those present at the festival considered to be worthy of getting the People's Choice Award.
Apparently, members of the jury also considered
this project most worthy of their attention, and awarded it for reusing cast iron in a very unconventional manner.
Those responsible for this lounge chair argue that, contrary to what some might believe, “[It] isn’t as uncomfortable as it looks.”
