With the environment degrading with every passing day, recycling and reincarnating daily utility products have become important to reduce the burden on nature. Industrial Design Consultants like Patrick Kiruki teach us exactly how the resources of the earth can be saved by re-incarnating abandoned products like a bicycle. The Kyama Chair you see in the flick above has been designed out of a rejected bi-cycle. In this unique product, the bicycle brake caliper is redeployed to serve a new stationary function as the support and pivot system for the chair. The seat reclines along a central pivot point that is controlled by the specially-designed curved half disc bicycle braking system, allowing the user to adjust the seating position with ease as well as acts like a rocking chair. The bicycle braking system provides a constant lock position that supports as much as 300 pounds of weight without shifting.
The fiber-glass side frames that are formed around the bicycle calliper create a stable seat base that is accommodating and comfortable both in form and function. Talking of the merger of sentimental values, the Kyama chair appeals to those who love outdoor activities and who appreciate the concept of bringing a piece of the outdoors inside the home. The uber lightweight of the Kyama Chair makes it mobile enough to be used outdoors as well. We need thinkers like Patrick to save the earth from further torture and his philosophy of reincarnation inspires us to start taking steps right away.
