It's thrilling to see designers continually release products that are modern not only in design, but also in how they are manufactured.
The No. 9 Chair, is the product of a match made in heaven collaboration of Studio Murmur and Loll.

The two teamed up to create a line of brightly colored outdoor lounge chairs and ottomans made entirely from HDPE (plastic milk jugs).

The lounge chair and ottoman will be available in six different colors and were recently debuted at ICFF &mdash they will be available for purchase later in the year.
