The Sea Urchin is a known sea creatures that we love to eat but we normally throw away its skin that is pointed and tend to be harmful. However, Dutch designer Rachel van Outvorst changed everything bad that we think about the sea urchin. She made a very attractive design out of it, and the result is truly a remarkable work of art, which is the sea urchin chair. The circular design of the sea urchin chair is not new anymore however, what is amazing about it is that it is handmade out of 8,000 cable ties.

I never knew that shopping carts could also be a useful chair as what the Junior Year student did in his final project. The chair was made with no welding work done.

I hope that now that we already have the idea of the shopping cart turns into a useful chair, no shopping carts will be thrown away anymore. Maybe some painting job can be done to those carts who already have some rusts or those who are slightly worn out already.
