Treehugger.com recently reported on a new furniture from Swedish designer Ola Giertz that uses hair from a hair salon in Helsingborg and recycled PET bottles to create two poufs. The plastic bottles were used to create the shells, and the hair was used as filling.
The transparency of the plastic poufs underlines the uniqueness of each piece, what with the randomness of the hair filling color, length and body.
No question that the product itself is unique. It’s likely that the majority of would-be users might find the visibility of the filling to be a little off-putting, but there’s bound to be a small number of homeowners who might enjoy owning such quirky furniture.
Would you want a pair of see-through, hair-filling, plastic poufs?
