crate chairs

August 30, 2012

We’ve recently completed a set of 4 chairs and a bench with an ottoman, made entirely from re-purposed hologram storage crates. I’ve posted before about a storage credenza made from the these things. I’ve also made a bed before. But this new set of furniture really morphs the crates into an entirely new and interesting form. The design uses the printed graphics to inform the user how to interact with the storage components of the furniture.

Each chair has a drawer in its base, and a compartment in its back. Plenty of room to keep those books, magazines, cat toys… Whatever you need…

No extra wood was used in the fabrication of these chairs. The original crates were cut down, and the cut-offs were recycled back into the structure. The only new components were a small amount of piano hinge, Masonite for the drawers, and a pin to hold the lid of the back storage in place.
