My lovely friend Nicole send me a link to artist Ryan Frank's web site and what a design^sprout find! His Inkuku chair is made entirely from old (hazard to the planet!) plastic shopping bags. The inspiration: a South African chicken ornament! I love when traditional local craft inspires the minds of our modern artists to be more green and utilize resources that would otherwise end up in a landfill. And if you can't afford the genius of Ryan Frank (I can't!) the chicken is pretty reasonable.
He also produces these cabinets which I think are pretty ingenious - leaving recycled white boards on the street of London for days, he then takes them, for better or worse, and creatively turns them into these funky cabinets.
