nola chair: recycled hurricane wood: kevin derrik
Kevin Derrick who works with Bahdee Bahdu in Philadelphia is featured this month (November 2007) in Interior Design Magazine for his own design, the Nola Chair. The design repurposes discarded post hurricane plywood as the only material (no glue, bolts, or screws) for this easy assembly chair. Each chair is constructed from one half a sheet of plywood--hundreds of tons of which are used pre hurricane by residents to board over windows of homes, businesses and schools. The Nola Chair is a practical and afordable solution to some of the waste that can benefit a community post hurricane.
