CHRIS BURTON's UPCYCLING: Stellation Chairs

Our last installment of Chris Burton’s “upcycled” furniture is his Stellation chair series, which is both simple in form and poetic in concept. Constructed from the abundant short wood cut-offs from construction sites, Burton repurposes an overlooked resource that would otherwise be discarded and sent to a landfill. The three chairs shown at his exhibition at Red Kite Studio are made from pine 2×4′s, heart pine, and a glue-laminated beam.

    Dear David,

    Maybe you should have stayed in bed. Everything looks great, but It’s the concept that’s really fantastic.

    I must have got up on the wrong side today – but here goes…..the table is a joke for any grad level design student; those are not chairs, they’re stools (seat is too deep and hard edged, back too short and narrow) and as a reult they look like they are, heavy and uncomfortable. Eames league? gimme a break.

    Really nice design ! Yes… it’s great that it’s recycled, but this design really engages regardless. It joins the Eames moulded plywood chairs in exclusive design company. Bravo ! P.S. A better occasional table design is required. The accompaning table in the photo doesn’t make it.
