“clothing For Chairs” Lets You Reuse And Update Your Furniture

Or if you just get tired of it? MocoLoco show us Chair Wear , in which the designers ask: “Why buy a new chair when you can dress up the one you have?” Marleen Sleeuwits The designer, Bernotat&Co , explains how it is a different way of looking at upholstery, sort of clothing for chairs. Chair Wear started as a mildly ironical joke, and ended up in a very inspiring new way of looking at furniture upholstery, of seeing it as a separate item, leading to new constructions, productions techniques and materials. Marleen Sleeuwits The Hoodini is flexible and practical: The multifunctional Hoodini – baggy storage space when hanging over the back of the chair and a privacy screen when pulled over the sitter’s head like a hood. Marleen Sleeuwits Knit-Net, essentially a chair cushion, it’s made of specially developed 3D knitwear inspired by the protective foam net packaging of expensive apples. So much of our stuff just gets thrown out, when all it really needs is a new coat.

A review of stories published by three major newswires, including The Associated Press, over the past year show he’s cited more often than SANA, Syria’s government-run news agency. Experts attribute the exposure to Abdurrahman’s non-stop publication schedule, and the fact that so many observers are barred from Syria and that others are at risk of kidnapping or worse.

Egyptian Iron Beads-Meteoric.jpg

A Sign of Ancient Welding In addition to being the oldest discovered artifacts made from meteoric iron, these beads provide novel insight into Egyptian civilization that predates the Iron Age by 2,000 years. Rehren says the beads are the earliest known sign of metalwork, suggesting that people at that time had already mastered the art of blacksmithing. (See: ” Egypt Mummy Pictures: Scans Show Ancient Heart Disease .”) The beads were created from rolling a very thin sheet of metal into a tube. Because meteoric iron is as tough as stainless steel, the process is precise. The brittle iron must be cooled extremely slowly to make sure it does not crack.
