If there is a saying that best friends are those, who are to with you in hardest times, than I have a new saying – best cousins are those who are ready to go with you to cut reed in the lake. Like Ansis.

It took quite a while to find accessible reed! Mostly they grow in the middle of the lake.

So, my first eco seat ideas were these:

Using just one piece of the plank of wood & economical pattern of cutting.  No waste, low tech, mountable. Almost DIY.

Using a bunch of reed, that creates needed conditions for sitting.

As the eco seat is also a study task at TaiK, both ideas I was discussing with my teachers & fellow students. Everybody agreed that the 1st idea is too usual, so the 2nd one seemed to be the way to go.

Eco seat or chair is quite trendy thing.

There are many views to the ECO solutions. Creating my eco furniture means not just create a working piece of furniture, but also to express my attitude towards this issue.

What can be more ecological seat than just a rock or a stump of a tree?

God is a super-eco-designer.

Is it worth to design a new seat?

Nobody can succeed without trying.
