Schorge Chairs

Back to Projects

Craftsmanship and ingenuity are the basis of the Schorge Chair. Its design was developed directly on the Lycée Schorge’s construction site. In order to upcycle the leftover construction materials, they were converted into the chair’s components: rebars from the roof structure become the legs and structure of the chair; while the hardwood used for the concrete form becomes the seat and backrest. Materials that are usually wasted now find a new life through the students’ everyday activities.
