What do you do with all those old tights and pantyhose you have around that probably need to be thrown away? You take them and make a really cool chair like Anna Herrmann. The product design student created 50 DENS, a project that found a sustainable way to transform some old clothing, in this case recycled sheer tights, into a long-lasting product that the user can enjoy over time.
Worn out tights have zero sentimental value and they’re definitely not worth anything, so Herrmann was challenged to figure out a way to turn that around and make something that would be of value. By weaving the familiar everyday material and using it as the seat and back support of the chair, it’s now see in an entirely new context and no longer a disposable commodity.
