Crutch chair

Will Holman is a student and designer studying architecture with the Outreach post-grad program at the Rural Studio in Newbern, AL. Working in a team of four, he will be designing the 20K House 9.0. He graduated with a degree in architecture from Virginia Tech in 2007, and has spent the last two years working in heavy concrete construction, carpentry, cabinet-making, and concrete countertop fabrication. However, his selection of chairs using unexpected objects is the subject of this post. He uses old things like shopping carts, tennis balls, and wheelbarrows and upcycles them into unique seating. Check out his Etsy shop here.
