Berkeley Teen Stops Traffic with Furniture Designs

We had to share this article we saw yesterday in the Chron, which details artist David Joseph-Goteiner's creative process of turning run-of-the-mill street signs into ergonomic, eye-catching furniture. Oh, and did we mention he's just 17?

You can read all about his work in the article here and see more images of his creations (including a closer look at the piece shown above, which is modeled after Le Corbusier's Chaise Lounge Model No. B306). You can also learn about how to purchase David's work, with all proceeds from sales to be donated by the artist to Oakland public school programs.
