Smart Peoples Chairs...

The scan of the design blogs this week affirms my theory that we are readying ourselves for the recession visually. remodelista is showing kitchens from all salvaged materials and designsponge is getting more and more DIY everyday. Now this work is real revolution-found via cribcandy-its a make your own child's chair, with all the instructions. The author is Swiss designer, Nicola Enrico Stabubi and he really tells it like it is, "Mass culture is run by superficiality and ecological absurdity"..... I really appreciate this approach because rather than just whine that furniture design is a consumptive act this guy is solving a problem. He not only designed the stool he has a "downloadable" site that gives you step by step instructions; . So get your Martha on and change the world.
