This past weekend at BKLYN Designs [2], we were excited to discover Kiel Mead and Michael Cummings of Hi-Five’s [3] simple but stunning Apt chairs, and were pleased to find out they are made from Richlite [4], a resin-impregnated paper product that we’ve praised on several occasions before [4]. The Apt Chairs also boast snazzy upholstery thanks to ModPod’s [5] organic cotton fabric line.

We love Hi Five’s [3] Apt Chairs’ delicate yet strong form and the coupling of green materials and a modern aesthetic. And in case you missed BKLYN Designs [2], you can still catch Hi Five’s designs [3] at HauteGreen [6] this weekend, where they’ll be on display along with the rest of the best of the best green designs.
