This project was about cooperation with Czech company Natex, which is the producer of nonwoven fabrics. Task was to use garbage material from their company. Struto is nonwoven fabric made from old clothes and plastic bottles. It is very flexible, but it always returns to the primar shape. My idea was to use the garbage sheets of struto as an upholstery, but also the storage place. Struto is very pleasant to touch and its randomly placed colours makes it very aesthetic and unique. Sheets are supercheap, so they can be very easily replaced. For construction I used solid beech wood, because of its strength and colour.
