Materials: Skateboard deck and steel cable
Pitch: The SK8Swing is a simple and clean project that encourages people to start crafting their own furniture or design piece. It's also a project for people who love the sport, but can't ride a skateboard. Having one around make me feel good and wild enough. A plain wood board, their original holes and two pieces of steel cable; combined materials that don't interfere with the skateboard deck's original design.
Designer: Ieda Pretel
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
