Upcycled Cable Chair

After finding a discarded red chair, I knew the original woven plastic was beyond repair. But the red metal frame was in great shape. So I set about finding a unique material to re-weave the seat and back.

The answer came from an old box I found in my closet -- cords and cables I'd been saving for years. Many of them were obsolete (FireWire anyone?) and others were damaged or simply old. One by one I wove them onto the red frame. I decided to leave the ends hanging loose, to reveal each cable's past life. Cables used include: USB, FireWire, ethernet, electrical, RCA audio, iPod connectors, phone chargers and more.

The whole seat and back took over 70 cables, individually woven and held in place with red cable ties. The seat flexes a bit as you sit, making the chair more comfortable than it may appear.

I'm thrilled with the finished product, a one of a kind, upcycled chair. What do you think?

Now that is awesome. You know how many cables get thrown away. This should be done by companies that make chairs.

I have used belts and neckties but never cables.. I have a box of them and a perfect chair. I think I have a new project.
