You’ve got to love the curves on this bent Plyboo Spring Chair [2] from Adapt Design [3]. Just looking at the picture one can practically feel oneself gently boinging up and down in ergonomic bliss.

These sleek and sexy chairs are about as sustainable as you can get without sitting in the dirt. According to designer Anthony Marschak, the single curving piece of Plyboo minimizes the weight of the piece and minimizes waste of the materials. A good thing for the manufacturer given the expense of Plyboo [4].


Jill got a good look at this chair at HauteGREEN [5] and reports that its even better looking in person than in photos.

$650 from Modern Bamboo [6]
