New Balance Trainers: 2012 Olympic Project 

New Balance's newSKY trainer, made from recycled plastic bottles was the inspiration for the Foam Chair and QR Stool. Observing how others created a great deal of foam and fabric waste, it was decided that this would become the raw material for our pieces of furniture.
