Rubber tires. How I love thee. Let me sit on the ways. First, I love how you’ve been around the block. Second, it feels excellent on my bottom to sit on your tread. Three, I love the three R’s, today’s being Re-use. Rubber tires, let me introduce you to Jaime Salm, who has created the Rubber Stool to harness your power, and close the loop.
Words from the designer, Jaime Salm:
With a seat made from 100 percent, post-consumer recycled tires, the Rubber Stool re-contextualizes recycled rubber as an ergonomic and pliable material for furniture. The Rubber Stool is designed to use the properties of recycled tires instead of hardware for attaching the seat to the frame. Each stool comes ready to be assembled and adjusted according to the user’s proportions and intended use. With a powder-coated frame and a resilient rubber seat, it can be used indoors or outdoors.
