As you'll see in the below video (via Inhabitots), when Brooklyn-based designer Hugh Hayden serves he really delivers.

Hayden's Tennis Ball Chair — yep, it's made from reclaimed tennis balls — generated some positive, ahem, racket, at the 2009 BKLYN DESIGNS show the other week. Like the rest of the balls-y pieces in Hayden's FUNature line, it's a bit over-the-top for my restrained, terrible-at-tennis taste, but this looker managed to pick up the show's "Most Innovative Use of Materials" award. And yes, you can even buy your own at The Future Perfect in the Willamsburg section of Brooklyn.
