Knotted into a trunk-like formation from the base of its roots, the brilliant Mangrove Chair  is crafted from a combination of recycled steel pipe, yellow pine and steel leaf. Created by Adam Krehbiel, this extraordinary piece of furniture demonstrates Veraseri Design’s  continued research into comfort through recycled materials. With a committment to sustainability, all proceeds made from sale of this unique piece go directly to supporting Mangrove  Ecosystem Conservation programs.
Krehbiel took care to lessen the amount of harmful gasses emmited during the welding process, and he created a special fume extraction and filtering system. The designer took his time to complete the chair, and spent a year refashioning steel pipes reclaimed from demolished buildings, and even smaller rods that were recycled from the Obama election campaign signs! To stain the chair, Krehbiel used a homemade, natural, low-VOC compound that is made up of key minerals from the Alice Springs Desert of Australia.
