Kart by Degueldre | Xavier Degueldre | Via
The typical life span of a shopping cart is between 10 and 15 years, and after their period of good service, they are destroyed. Wanting to give them a second life, french designer xavier degueldre has decided to recycle them in a way that renders them still functional, but with renewed purpose.
‘Kart by Degueldre’ is a collection of chairs and armchairs that have been fashioned from shopping carts. the result is a series of desirable, design objects derived from a very impersonal product — something that typically stands as a symbol of consumption in the occidental world. The trolleys are bent and reworked in such a way that affords them to act as comfortable furniture. each ‘kart by degueldre’ is numbered and registered, and is available in a range of shapes and sizes so that you can customize yours according to how you want to enhance your home or garden (for indoor or outdoor use).
