New chairs made from old tech (photos)
N+ew, which stands for No More Electronic Waste, is the creation of Chilean artist Rodrigo Alonso. Alonso makes these stools out of old electronics.
Too much e-waste
Though N+ew is a functional piece of furniture, Alonso also created the chairs to make a statement about the amount of e-waste in this world.
Take a seat
Alonso produces the chairs in limited runs, but you can also special order one.
The N+ew chairs are very cool looking, but they also highlight the problem of e-waste.
All the old tech pieces are donated by Chilean recycling company Recycla.
Alonso creates the stools by pouring clear epoxy resin and melted recycled aluminum into molds. The resin can also be dyed red.
The legs of the stool are made from cast aluminum.
