Traffic Sign Chairs

These traffic sign chairs were created from cast off traffic signs and old, school chair frames. The style of these chairs was inspired by origami and the resulting design is edgy, urban and cool. Better still these chairs are comfortable and perfect for outside use – the traffic signs were made to be outdoors!
