This fantastic piano key chair [1] struck a chord for sustainable design last weekend at the opening of the International Contemporary Furniture Fair [2]in New York. Created by BRC Designs [3], the armchair gives tired and out-of-tune pianos a whole new purpose. The surface of the Korobeiniki chair is constructed entirely from the instruments – from the internal wooden frame to the seat itself. The chair’s dynamic, textured exterior features an assortment of layered keys, giving the classic instrument a modern twist.

The Korobeiniki chair consists of an assortment of piano keys and parts that have been stacked and joined in a cube-like shape. The different tones of the keys gives a sense of depth to this edgy piece, and its strong structural shape gives it a hint of the dramatic presence of a piano in its original form.

South Carolina-based BRC Designs [5] never fails to impress with their unique designs. Having already won us over with their geek-chic circuit table [6] and their card deck chair [7], we can’t wait to see what unconventional design could be up their sleeve next.
