Who wouldn't like a chair called "Let's Grow Some Balls"? This cool design is by Doreen Westphal of Krejci. I love it's two fold environmental aspects of being made from recycled plastic and housing plants. Another green aspect to the chair is that you don't have to get rid of it when you tire of it's style and design. Instead, you can just replant and give the chair an entirely different feel.The design pictured above has an arch over the top to encourage a sort of roof to grow to the chair. Vines and climbing plants can use the arch to grow on and fill in the spaces of the arch. This design looks very outdoors-y while the next design looks very modern and minimalist.
With re-planting, the chair is entirely redesigned! It'd be pretty hard to get tired of a chair who's only design change limitation is your own imagination. You could even have this chair in your kitchen growing fresh herbs and veggies for your cooking. You can't get much fresher than that and have a comfy place to eat at the same time.
The plants can be easily changed out of the back of the chair at any time and is capable of growing anything that you're capable of keeping alive. This chair can be used both indoors or outdoors and would look great in either location. You could even grow flowers in it to match your decor if you're one of those matchy-matchy style people.
Krejci is an Amsterdam design company that started about 3 years ago in Amsterdam when an artist got a bag of used bicycle tires as a prank gift. She decided to do something with those used rubber tires and made a whole line of bags and purses out of the inner tubes and pieces of felt. The bags are beautiful and resemble their less eco-friendly leather counterparts. They are also very practical upcycled works because the inner tubes make the bags water resistant as well as stylish! How's that for taking lemons (crappy present) and making lemonade (new business)?
