question: if you wanted a landfill in your living room would you want it in the shape of a chair? if so, your wish can become reality now with the xs chair by california college of the arts design student nick demarco. nick says the production pieces will be made of recycled plastic mesh, and that it can be filled with anything you own in excess, such as these handy vitamin water bottles seen below.

    What’s wrong with it? I don’t want to sit in trash, but I could easily fill that with my sewing scraps. I think it’s neat!

    hi joslyn,

    right now that photo looks to me like something you would float around the pool in. and i am thinking it would be a garbage pool.

    i said what i did because (like you) i am not into the idea of sitting on a pile of trash either. but i think your sewing scraps would be very pretty.

    thank you for stopping by and for filling my mind with a new and much more palatable visual!

    Gigi, tell the truth: you only posted this because you knew how MAD it was gonna make me…

  4. the scholar Says:

    johnny!

    hahahahahaha!

    (i did not think you would like it… but really joclyn’s idea makes it seem much better)

    After reading the write-up on Vogue’s Style.com I think that is the true intent of the chair… to let the user “curate” the contents to their own liking.
