RE-TIRE CHAIR / Chair

RE-TIRE CHAIR

This is a green furniture made of waste tires. In Taiwan, the main purpose of tire recycling is to support combustion. However, it contains 70% rubber that would be damage the nature ecological system.
Therefore, we rethought how to apply waste tires to our life. We decided to keep waste tires in original appearance after the analysis. Then we combined with a natural material “Ramie” in Taiwan to give waste tire in different meaning. It is a stackable and easy-storage chair and will bring the space-saving effect.
