Today at Dezeen Platform: Clinton Sheldon

Dezeen Platform: design graduate Clinton Sheldon brings a series of products made of components salvaged from the factory of British furniture company Ercol to our micro-exhibition Dezeen Platform at Dezeen Space today. Watch a movie about this project here.

The pieces are made using redundant components that would otherwise be destined for Ercol's factory furnace.

One piece is wrapped in a red electrical cable, leading to a light bulb.

Another piece is a rocking chair that utilises discarded pieces from the factory's wooden chairs.

Other stories on Dezeen featuring discarded materials include a sledge made from a leftover Christmas Tree, a cabinet made from reclaimed floorboards and an animated pond made of 60 discarded computer monitors.

    I love projects that reuse and recycle. I also hate the low-back chair trend, especially with those tall bar stools that cost $3k a pop i see everywhere — ur gonna fall backwards eventually, specially in a rocking chair
