Earth Day Gets Quirky: Well Proven Stools and Chairs

Making earth day a little quirkier and definitely more interesting- if you are looking for sustainability, green consciousness and unique style in your decor  look no further than Well Proven‘s collection of chairs and stools.

Designers/ creators Marjan van Aubel and James Shaw were driven with the fact that processing wood in typical furniture manufacturing casuses 50% to 80% of timber wastage. Thus the duo looked at ways of incorporating  those waste shavings into design using bio-resin. Mixing the bio-rensin with wood shavings created this chemical reaction; the result is seen in the foaming texture used on the seat of the stools and chairs. Adding color dye and working with different sized shavings from different workshop machines they are able to create these colorful, lightweight and mouldable material.
