Marjan van Aubel and James Shaw incorporate waste shavings into design chairs using bio resin

Understanding that there is 50% to 80% of timber wastage during normal manufacture, Marjan van Aubel and James Shaw incorporated waste shavings into design chairs and stools using bio resin. A curious chemical reaction occurs when it is mixed with the shavings, expanding it into foam. The porridge-like mixture of resin and shavings is slapped on to the underside of the chair shell by hand, forming a strong and lightweight material. The exuberantly shaped seat is anchored by the simple turned legs of American ash, Walnut or Cherry wood. The series of Well Proven Chairs are especially designed for Transnatural Label.
