Materials: recycled Ikea stools

Description: Not my hack, but thought you would be interested. Wahala Temi’s “Afrikea” chair is made from recycled Ikea stools and is part of the “The Global Africa Project” at the Museum of Arts and Design. The quilts are made by Kairumbi Karimsahib, left, and Ramijabi Madarsahib, who are part of the Siddi Women’s Quilting Cooperative in India.

See a slideshow of the exhibition.
