a chair made from candy wrappers by Mexican Designer emiliano godoy
"the ‘snowjob’ chair designed by emiliano godoy is formed by two main components.
the first is a wooden structure that forms the legs and general support of the piece, manufactured in FSC certified wood and a vegetable based, biodegradable finish. the structure also partly disassembles by means of stainless steel hardware, reducing the shipping size of the chair in half, and consequently transportation and storage environmental impacts.the second component is a cover produced by ecoist that slips on top of the wooden structure and forms the seat, back and armrests that the user is in contact with. this cover is made using small pieces of post-industrial waste from the candy wrapping industry. labels that are misprinted, or which feature incorrect or obsolete information, are recovered and cut into small sections, which are then folded into rectangular pieces and joined to form large surfaces. an internal reinforcement made from post-consumer recycled paper is used to give rigidity and resistance to the labels.”
