‘waste-less log chair’ by architecture uncomfortable workshop



hungarian architecture uncomfortable workshop have taken the waste remains of reclaimedoak timber logs after being processed to wood beams, and created ‘waste less chair’ – an expandable seat that integrates two open positions, one as a rocking-chair, and one with a leg rest. when not in use, the piece can be fully closed by collapsing it into its natural form.

  • Thats a lot of good wood for one chair… could have made several. The waste-not angle seems specious. Otherwise its pretty clever.
