Ecofriendly Salvaged Chair sculpture made from from recycled plastic
Artist and designer Jay Sae Jung Oh named her artistic, unique and ecofriendly sculpture as Salvaged Chair and that’s because she has used recycled plastic or say, manufactured objects as construction material. This creative designer started collecting discarded plastic such as plastic objects and wrapped the amalgam into natural materials. If you notice carefully, the whole sculpture includes variety of shapes, which appears to be attached individually, merging into the whole sculpture without losing their individual relevance.
The designer found inspiration from the abundance of objects present around us and she assumes innovation, invention, and beauty can emerge from even the most common objects around us, rather designer Jay demonstrated it with her artistic ecofriendly Salvaged Chair. It’ll be wrong to call it a sculpture only, because, you can actually put your butts on it and have some rest, while wondering what’s the limit of creativity and artistic imagination.
What makes Salvaged Chair ecofriendly
The sculpture has been created using discarded plastic, which designer collected from different sources and mixed them to form an amalgam. Further, the wrapping used is also made from made from plant fiber. Recycling plastic helps reducing the amount of waste thrown in landfills, which is not biodegradable.
