Artichoke Thistle Lounge Chair by Spyros Kizis

The Artichoke Thistle Lounge Chair contains plant fibre from the weed that gives it its name.

Nature’s potential as a resource has yet to be fully realized, but with fuel and energy crises looming large, it is only a matter of time. In response to the economic downfall of his native Greece, Edinburgh College of Art graduate Spyros Kizis suggests a new material for the development of products in his part of Europe.

The artichoke thistle grows wild in Greece and is suitable for use in the biofuel industry. Kizis’ Artichoke Thistle Lounge Chair is created using a combination of plant fibre and organic epoxy resin. The chair is completely biodegradable and can be reused as biofuel.
