When A Domestic Trash Bin Becomes A Chair

Also the trash bin itself becomes trash at some point. Via Recycleart we stumbled upon these wicked upcycled chairs.

The so-called ‘Long-Ton-Chair’ is made in Austria by Garbage Upcycling and available from 115 euros. The chairs are mostly made from a classic garbage bin for domestic trash. The seat is lined with vinyl truck sail. Basic outdoor materials are used here for indoor design furniture, which points to a widely felt fascination with regular urban design items. People just like to have a bit of the city’s lay-out in their houses.
