Upcycle retro fridge into chairs

Israeli designers seem to like to work in couples (see Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay). Or Naama and Idan from Reddish Studio. Danit and Yinnon Simhi, the design duo from Groovy, who Green Prophet has featured before (recycled records to business card holders), updates the old Israeli Amcor fridge into retro furniture.

Above is a chair and stool made from an Amcor 7 from the 50s (the same model of fridge I owned for 7 years), modeled say the designers after Eero Aarnio‘s Globe Chair from the 60s.

Looks like it would make my back a little stiff, and that it could topple over, but I would seriously consider buying the Moroccan-inspired recycled record table, pictured below, and above the lovely design duo pictured above.

As of 2021 when we updated this article, the Groovy website was no longer functioning.
