Bamboo is sturdy and long lasting compared to a regular lumber or plywood. That is why designer James Lear uses bamboo in his beautiful and stylish chair called Check. The bamboo is carefully cleaned and lacquered for a beautiful and shiny finish. It is then used for the chair’s seat and the bent all the way up toward the backrest. It also has a steel frame making the chair sturdy enough to carry different weight. It also has a slit in the middle of the backrest that made the Check stylish. Using the bamboo made the check chair not only stylish but eco-friendly as well.
