OOoo Chair: Furniture 2.0?
NY-based designers Martina Decker and Peter Yeadon challenge traditional furniture in an effort to reduce waste and provoke efficiency of design.
NY-based designers Martina Decker and Peter Yeadon wanted to address the energy use and waste problems that still plague the furniture industry. They found that even ‘eco’ produced furniture still tended to use materials like aluminum that while being recyclable, required a lot of energy for production. So instead of developing ideas based on creating more ‘stuff’, Decker and Yeadon challenged themselves to rethink furniture as a thing. Their project is intended to provoke thought about why buildings and the furniture that fills them can’t be more integrated and efficient.
