Collected junk from the ocean becomes this wonderfully speckled Sea Chair, in a clever design driven by Studio Swine.
The team at Studio Swine, together with Welsh designer Kieren Jones, has created devices to collect and process junk from the ocean and have been working with fishermen to process the marine debris into a range of products while at sea.
And it gets better – you can make your own recycled sea chair. Flick the designers an email and they'll send you the complete design manual.
