Clutch Chair and Light

Eco design project focused on the reuse of drinking straws. Made from 10,000 drinking straws, the Clutch Chair is an exploratory research piece that passes comment on our disposable culture. The development process of this piece also informed that of the Clutch Light, both of which were developed from an observation of the structural characteristics of trees. This piece was selected by Zaha Hadid as her Curator’s Choice at Noise Festival 2008

To create the Clutch Light, drinking straws were grouped and transformed into a primitive spotlight. The reflective inner surface of the straw transmits the light in a directional manner creating a jewelesque effect.
