Latex Roll Pouf: An upcycled seating option that's just the right fit
A colorful example of creative upcycling, Latex Roll Poufs from Italian design trio 13 Ricrea are made from sheets of latex left over from the production of insoles.
Who doesn’t love a good pouf? I just scored a mighty pretty, hand-knit one myself from CB2 and for what it lacks on the eco-materials front, it makes up for in money- and space-saving versatility. I plan on using mine as a seat/ottoman/side table/conversation piece.
Spotted over at Design Milk, here’s a collection of colorful poufs that are versatile, ergonomic, comfortable, and made from eco-friendly materials: 13 Ricrea’s Latex Roll Pouf. The poufs are upcycled from excess sheets of latex used in the manufacture of shoes in Italy — specifically insoles. If you look at the poufs, you can see insoles stamped out of the big latex bundles. Pretty cool and for those of you pining after fine Italian footwear but can’t afford it, this might be your best bet (it’s just a little shy of $100, a whole lot less than a pair of Ferragamo heels).
Available in green, lilac, white, sand, and black, Latex Roll Poufs are available exclusively at e-side. I think they'd make a great addition to kids' rooms, walk-in closets, and eco-conscious shoe stores.
