Award-winning Fly-Ash chair uses recycled coal byproduct

In an effort to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) furniture design graduate student Erica Stine created the Fly-Ash chair, a modern and eco-conscious chair constructed entirely of recycled coal waste. The sustainable furniture design concept recently earned a notable honor in the 2020 international Red Dot Design Competition’s “Home Furniture” category.
