• Philip Starck’s Broom Chair carved out of recycled industrial waste!

  • Recycling has taken a new form recently with designer Philip Starck’s latest, a chair made from recycled industrial waste! Called the Broom Chair, this piece of furniture will be show off at the ICFF and uses 90% recycled waste from industrial sources. Previously unveiled at the Milan Furniture Fair, this design was conceived for Emeco and uses discarded wood fibres and reclaimed polypropylene. Using these materials to create a plastic-wood composite, Starck managed to create a comfortably elegant piece of furniture that’s as green and eco-friendly as you’d require a chair to be!
