Tyred, old tires upgraded

With the Design Indaba Expo coming up in a few days time in Cape Town, there will be a lot of designa goods to view, including these great pieces from Tyred

"If you’re looking for durable furniture that is not only helping the environment, but also helping people find jobs, Tyred will have you burning rubber in no time. By taking used and old tires, Tyred create custom designed chairs, ottomans and tables that can be used indoors and outdoors. They use various materials from foam and leather to canvas and wood, meaning each piece of furniture can be made to your specifications and to fit the location in which you want to use them. While helping the environment, Tyred is also making a social impact by only employing men with families and attest to hiring more men as the need arises. "Design Indaba.
