Sitting Pretty on a Recycled Plastic Chair

Australian industrial designer Stuart Mcfarlane has designed a chair made by folding recycled plastic, without the use of glues or screws and which can hold up to 100 kg. The chair is intended to be suitable indoors and out, and could be re-recycled at the end of its life via domestic infrastructure. It’s simple design and clean lines do appeal to me, but for increased sustainability, the same chair could be developed from thin gauge sheet metal with a similar result. Like it! But hey, will designers stop playing it safe and use some color for a change?!!
