Aymeric Renoud‘s R chair is the first in a series of four furnishings that explore one of the most basic notions of sustainability, the 4R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rethink).The idea for this chair was to adopt a minimalist approach in order to reduce waste and provide material economy without compromising sturdiness, aesthetics and durability. The R Chair features a slender folding frame strung with hand-dyed hemp rope. Material economy helps to reduce the chair’s impact, and the entire piece was assembled by hand and finished with natural materials. Aymeric Renoud created the R Chair for a study project at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
