Trash Cube

  • Posted by on December 21, 2010 in Design
  • With the "Trash Cube," Swiss designer Nicholas Le Moigne sets his sights on the small market of green design fanatics who also happen to be narcoleptic. There is no danger of falling asleep sitting on this thing. Created entirely from scrap fibre cement, the Trash Cube is an interesting vision of green furniture — and maybe the least comfortable seat imaginable.

    Workers at the Eternit (a type of cement used to make roofing tiles and flower pots) factory in Switzerland toss offcuts into Le Moigne's cube-shaped mould where they’re left to dry overnight. Et voila! The next morning you have a simple, unique seat-sculpture that may or may not give you hemorrhoids.
