Endless: The Most Eco-friendly Furniture Yet?

As we all become more aware of the environmental issues and impacts our actions make, we all strive to be a little more conscientious and eco-friendly as possible. One Dutch designer, Dirk Vander Koolj has taken this step further and has created a robot capable of creating pieces of furniture from parts of unwanted old electrical appliances that would normally sit in landfills.

Vander Koolj reprogrammed an old robot to melt down unwanted plastics from refrigerators, washing machines and other white goods and then this melted plastic is remodelled into pieces of colourful and funky chairs through layering continuous threads of plastic over each other. He calls his new line of furniture ‘Endless’ and I think it is pretty darn cool.
