Everybody deserves a chance to know better We believe in education and in re-thinking the way things are done. So much talent is wasted in this world because many people (children and adults alike) do not have the opportunity to get the education they would need to make a difference in this world. Our charity donations are aimed at knowing better and improving the life circumstances for people around the globe through the means of education. We donate 5% of our revenue to charities which have education support as their main aim.
Danish designer Johanna Riedl‘s Saw Dust Chair redefines waste minimization by reusing sawdust from its own manufacture to create a comfy cushion.
Sawdust created while constructing the chair’s wood frame is vacuum sealed in bags to create a stiff and comfortable seating element.
Riedl’s brilliant chair forms part of the Morphology program established by the Royal Danish Academy Schools of Architecture and Design.
The process of transforming a piece of wood into a chair generates a fair amount of waste material, plus the sawdust is usually recycled into burning material, which can’t be good for the environment.
Johanna Riedl decided to use waste in an efficient way- in producing the chair itself.
The dust made by shaping the chair’s frame is moulded into semi-transparent bags that can be emptied of air. This feature makes the seating element more comfortable and stable.
