One man's junk is another man's treasure

Have you ever heard of upcycling? It’s the process of taking old (and seemingly useless) items and finding a brand new purpose for them. Over the past few years, up-cycling has become a huge trend. So much so, that many salons have started re-purposing old material to make some amazing art, furniture and decorations.

Recycled hair poufs

Designer Ola Giertz Bare designed two odd seating poufs stuffed with human hair, which were collected from the hair salon.  The project is called Bare Hair Project and was designed for Studio Västra Sandgatan, a Swedish hair studio in Helsingborg, Sweden.  It’s not only about recycling hair, but even the poufs are made from recycled PET bottles.

  

Recycled hair poufs

Sitting on human hair sounds odd and not much people would think about using human hair in such a way. Actually, that’s the theme of the Bare Hair Project; recycling and using what is otherwise considered ugly. The hair can be found in abundance at hari salons and it’s cheap too. Even the scope of shades changes with the hair color, as the poufs are transparent.  So, in nutshell, it’s an incredible idea to recycle hair and stuff them into poufs made from recycled PET Bottles, which otherwise would be thrown into landfills or burnt.
