Chair- Bombing

Chair-bombing is the act of building chairs out of found materials, and placing those chairs in a public space in order to improve its comfort, social activity and sense of place.

DoTank’s chair-bombing process began by building Adirondack chairs made from discarded shipping pallets. The DIY chairs were placed in public areas that were in need of street furniture. These places included side-walks in front of coffee shops, transit stops with no seating, and other areas with potential to become quality public spaces, but were suffering from a dearth of public amenities.

The method of using shipping pallets to build the chairs allows us to have a light impact on the natural environment, while carrying out an action that can be replicated all over the world due to the ubiquity of the source material.
