Sea Chair for Studio Swine
Short film showing how Studio Swine makes a chair from plastic from the ocean
The ‘Sea Chair’ is made entirely from plastic recovered from our oceans. In collaboration with Kieren Jones, Studio Swine has created devices to collect and process marine debris into a series of stools.
The number of plastic pieces in the oceans has tripled in the last ten years. Since the discovery of the Pacific Garbage Patch in 1997, which is predicted to measure twice the size of Texas, five more have been found across the world’s oceans with the Atlantic gyre predicted to be even larger.
