Old Plastic Roller Blinds Become A Chair

Tenenbaum Hazan created a chair out of a most unexpected material: old roller blinds.

The TRIS chair is made from plastic roller blinds that, according to the designers, in Israel have no economical profitability in its recycling processes, as they’re now being replaced with aluminum roller blinds. To preserve and reuse the materials, they’ve designed a closed wooden structure in which the blinds are held. One side — where you sit — is flexible while the other side is locked.
