Kent Gration’s Wambamboo Costello Seat [2] is a wonderful example of sustainable materials used in an eye-catching way. Made from cross-laminated bamboo ribs, the ergonomically-designed small storage holder puts the focus on the exotic nature of the materiality, creating a vivid mosaic of the bamboo’s colors and layers. The seat has been created as a prototype for future production which will use plywood molding techniques.

Kent is an Australian designer whose work we stumbled across at the recent 100% Design London [3] festivities. We love his unique approach to using sustainable materials in new and interesting ways.
