You know when you're digging through trash for old cardboard boxes, then you find some and are all like, "Dude, check out my new chair!"? Well, you're clearly homeless, but that doesn't mean it's not a good idea, and proving it is sitGREEN.
The brainchild of an ASU undergrad, sG's a collection of eco-stylish furniture handmade from recycled cardboard, which's compressed between plywood using steel rods and oversized nuts until it can bear the weight of a "1-ton truck", which is apparently heavier than a 1-ton bag of feathers. Ass-resting includes the Benchback, whose hollow square seat sports a slatted back, while variations count the taller Barstool (w/ steel footrest), and The Bench, which clocks in at 5' wide for "maximum butt capacity"; there's also a rocking chair with a moon-shaped seat aptly dubbed the Crescent Rocker -- here's hoping whoever's sitting on yours isn't too fertile. Table-wise there's a hollowed-out square or rectangular job set on cork feet, and topped with perforated steel that can be covered with a pane of "smoked acrylic", which, like you in the same condition, is quite murky.
He'll even entertain fully custom jobs depending on your needs, though if you're still digging through trash, you probably have too many to count.
