Going Green with Bamboo Chair

Bamboo is one of the renowed sustainable materials available furniture use in the market today.
It is a wonderful replacement plants for tree with its short growth cycle and a high carbon dioxide exchange rate. There are over 1200 documented species, it is considered as a grass, a mature grove of bamboo sends up new shoots every year. there new shoots reach their full size in just a couple of months.

I like this bamboo chair chair by Isamu Noguchi and Isamu Kenmochi. This is perfect balance between Western modernism and Japanese expertise. This chair frame is made of a repetition, twisted iron bars instead of wood, which gives an open view seat weaving two baskets, pin cushions for the seat and a horizontal curved tube to the back, hanging on a chair Hardoy’s butterfly frames.

I like this organic bamboo Nung lounge chair created by a Sweden company's partner and head designer, Jake Huke.

This Nung chair is part of Xeno Objects' first collection; Nung, which means “first” or “one” in Thai, is made entirely by hand in Thailand from bamboo fibers that are sealed together with an environmentally friendly epoxy that is not only extremely durable, but also contains 60% less volatile organic compounds than other resins, making it environmentally sound.
The bamboo chair was designed to commemorate the ten year anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China. The chair celebrates both China's heritage, as well as the country's transition into the modern 21st century.

I like this chair, it has sleem lines that made the bamboo chair stands out, it works well for western or eastern intrior.
