Hey chair! Be a bookshelf | Baas


Product designer Maarten Baas saves discarded items from landfills and dumpsters to assemble pieces of furniture such as these. A violin becomes a coat hanger or an assembly of chairs becomes a bookshelf.

I’m drawn to this idea of refurbishing and renewing unwanted items into more desirable pieces of furniture. It breaks away from expectations and functions as a piece of sculpture aside from being just a bookshelf.
