environment friendly paper tube chair by Manfred Kielnhofer.
Enjoy the environment friendly paper chair that is made from your recycled
newspapers. The cardboard chairs were made in 2002 and since them have been
used in Artpark and for various events. The
attached photo is a recent one. The paper chair has retained the same good
condition since its production. The armchairs are made from used cardboard
tubes. The tubes are made from recycled paper.
Ecology tip from Manfred Kielnhofer
by Manfred Kielnhofer
chair literally lights up the room.
Reminiscent of American minimalist artist Dan Flavin’s
fluorescent light sculptures, this unique chair literally lights up the
room. Manfred Kielnhofer plays with
fluorescent light and transparent tubes that change colour creating an out
of this world atmosphere. The chair is a composition of unique long neon
lighting contained in transparent tubes placed horizontally; a surprise of
what one can do with commercially available fluorescent light fixtures.
Also available in environmentally friendly paper tubes.
