The Tire Seating Furniture by Synthesis StudioFebruary 26th, 2011 - Posted in Furniture Design
The Vancouver, Canada based designers, Mario Sabljak and Mimi Law of Synthesis Studio, have created the Tire Seating Furniture. The tire Seating Series is an experiment to explore the potential of sustainable design by using aluminum composite, a material not traditionally used for furniture making. The core seating area consists of an oval shape cut out of one single sheet of 4mm thick aluminum composite, a recyclable material that is made of two aluminum cover sheets with a low-density polyethylene core. The seating cushion is made of 100% recycled rubber from truck tires. The back brace and legs are made of stainless steel tubing. The outcome of this experiment is furniture that is weather-resistant, light weight, strong and 100% recyclable. The Oval Bench and Chair can be used as lounge, reception, residential or patio seating. Unique and creative furniture for manufacturers. So many benefits from waste tires that are created by creative hands like this seat.
