Disposable chopsticks are a huge waste of resources and a huge contributor to landfills across the world. One answer to this problem is Artist Yuya Ushida's amazingly innovative seating solution made from 8,000 recycled chopsticks!

When you think about China's 45 Billion disposable chopsticks requiring 100 acres of forests every 24 hours, recycling options are a must until consumers are trained to carry their own reusable chopsticks.

Yuya Ushida, spent about 3 months constructing it. Yuya says the sofa can support three people under 155 pounds.

Check out the video slideshow of the chair/sofa in action:
