Talking Chair/ Recycled Design - What is the Meaning?

Talking chair travels around to different locations from month to month to create its own unique story. It is not merely exhibited as a design object but it also serves as the ‚place’ of discussions over sustainability, social responsibility. This iconic piece of furniture embodies the principle of both UP and REcycle. It was manufactured in a protected local workshop by employing socially and economically disadvantaged local labor. The manufacturing company dedicates part of its profit to the support of local organizations. The manufacturer, BOKJA, a Lebanese furniture company gives a good example of a business venue that not only creates products but also defines social and global messages through its creations to the world.
