Dutch designer Reinier de Jong [1] gives new life to old broomsticks with his STEEL chair [2] (steel actually means handle in Dutch). Each chair is made from 10 meters of handles that still show traces of their former use. He invites everyone to contribute to the project – you can donate old wooden handles from brooms, rakes, shovels, flagpoles, and banisters as long as they are 28 or 29 mm in diameter. For each usable meter of old handles, Reinier de Jong [1] will donate 1 Euro to charity.
