We hear of renewable items being developed, of green and environment0friendly stuff being made all over the world but can you ever imagine sitting on a cow bone or keeping your stuff on a cow bone and calling yourself green and environment conservationist? Well, here is a student who has really gone ahead of his times or should I say back in those times when we could not have looked beyond animals, plants and everything nature had provided us with.
Ama Darko Williams has taken nature very seriously and has devised a way to save the world by using natural means. He has developed a stool like furniture using cow bones. Yes, it sounds caveman times again but we see no bad in this. A 24 year old student doing Masters in innovation Design engineering at the Royal College of Art in London, Williams fell upon the idea after having wasted some time trolling around the garbage of a butcher shop in London. Having come out with a designer stool, this can be deemed as the world’s most sustainable designer stool.
Talking about it Williams says, “The abundant supply and sustainable source of bone make it an ideal material for furniture”. It has been designed in a very unique manner like this- three cow bones combine to form the stool’s central leg and seat while the industrial metal pieces cerate the other two legs and joints of the stool. It might look as if it will break any moment but she adds on by saying that the stool can carry atleast 220 pounds on it.
She says, “Certain parts of bone remain very strong after death. Tests were carried out as to where best to place steel supports, but the bone alignment still holds a lot of weight.” She adds that a lot of effort and mechanism has gone into making t come true. You need a lot of sausages, infact “3rd leg emerged out of a lot of boiling, burning, blood, rotting, and fat.” So next time you want a plate for keeping the bones away while having your dinner, you can get this stool and place the plate on it and enjoy the irony.
