You don’t have to be a skater to appreciate these clever decks [2]! Based on their passion for mid-century design, skateboard culture, and the SoCal lifestyle, designers Pierre Andre Senizergues [3] and Gil Le Bon de LaPointe [3] have launched a new company that makes sleek, gorgeous post modern furnishings and accessories out of recycled second hand skate board products. Skate Study House [4] is quintessential California – skater cool, mid-century minimal, and totally green.

Taking their cues from the Case Study Houses [5] that redefined the modern home and had such a pronounced influence on architecture, Skate Study House recreates popular modern furnishings through the vision of a devoted boarder. The Godfather Lounge Chair [6] (and ottoman) is an Eames-inspired delight constructed out of seven walnut laminated decks while the Jet Set Lounge Chair [7] is great for both indoor and outdoor use since it’s upholstered in nearly indestructible neoprene, or surfer’s wetsuits. Not letting a single component go to waste, Skate Study also makes the witty Astro [8] clock from polyurethane wheels and the sleek Skate Wall [9] out of the maple deck out of which skateboards are cut. With a sweet selection chairs, coffee tables, and accessories, this is mid-century for the new generation of 21st century design enthusiasts.
