Old Roller Blinds Become Shapely Lounge Chair

  • Posted by SHFT on June 5, 2011 in Design
  • Israeli industrial design studio Tenenbaum Hazan has found a surprising use for the plastic window blinds that have been replaced by lighter, stronger alternatives made of aluminum. The flowing, curvaceous TRIS chair features old plastic roller blinds held together by a closed wooden contour that keeps the form in place. The side where you sit is flexible while the other side is locked. Smart. 

    Check out some photos of the manufacturing process on Tenenbaum Hazan's Facebook page
