MOST INNOVATIVE USE OF MATERIALS: FUNATURE BY HUGH HAYDEN

Hugh Hayden‘s fresh new line of FUNature repurposes plastic balls into a bright bunch of furnishing solutions. We were particularly impressed with his tennis ball chair, which is composed entirely of recycled tennis balls that have lost their bounce.
