CHRIS BURTON’s UPCYCLING: Yield Shelving
Posted By Emily Pilloton On January 25, 2007 @ 4:15 pm In green furniture,Recycled Materials | 4 Comments
This morning we touted Chris Burton’s Repose Lounge  as an example of his “upcycled” furniture, made from a variety of construction site waste and other miscellaneous dumpster detritus. His equally-ingenious Yield shelves provide a modular shelving system based on the order of an equilateral triangle. Yield’s various vessels are made from plywood, various wooden off-cuts, and even drywall, giving a unique texture and tactility to each unit. The Yield system was featured, along with the Repose Lounge, as part of Burton’s  recent student exhibition at Savannah’s Red Kite Studio  gallery.
