In the age of remixes, can a classic like the Victorian chair be spared? Timeless design meets modern material in the Victorian Chair-Eco Remix which uses recycled paper in 5PLY corrugated-boards. Weighing approximatively two kilos, the chair supports up to 120 kilos. It uses the perennially stylish black-and-white combination to make a dramatic visual statement. The furniture project was designed by Prasanna Sankhe, of HYPHEN, Mumbai and can be successfully integrated in minimalist and eclectic decors.
According to the designer, “the chair is not a burden on the Ecology, and its light on your wallet as well“. Relatively half the cost of conventional chairs, The Victorian chair – ECO REMIX comes for a mere $110 USD. Enjoy the many details presented below and let us know what you think of this furniture piece and its production process. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by designer Prasanna Sankhe]
