On this rainy and dark friday I came across an upcycle design that brightened up my day. Why? Just because it shows again what stunning objects people make by using discarded materials and objects.
I’m saying it over and over again so people will finally realize that upcycle design has grown into a mature design and art form. The world should know by now that upcycle design is here to stay and isn’t only a hype or something to sneer about.
A chair that shows craftsmanship and quality
Of course, just like ‘normal’ design, there’re different levels of design. Here on upcycleDZINE I’m always on the look out for quality pieces. And to show you what I mean, look at this featured chair by Sandman from Germany.

The design is named Easy Rider and is an impressive cantilever chair made from some old discarded planks. Always loved this type of chair. The first ones I saw, still one of my favorites, is the Cantilever Chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and of course the Zig-Zag chair by Gerrit Rietveld . The Easy Rider is a stunning piece and it shows tremendous craftsmanship. The shape, the way it is built and the beautiful dark finish shows a great interweaving of light and dark pieces. A fantastic example of what upcycle design can be like.
Well, let the photos tell the story!
