Life today is all about recycling. Major companies invest millions of dollars in getting hold of the used or discarded vehicles, computers, television, and music players to recycle them in the best possible manner without causing any environmental damage. From Cape Town, Katie Thompson likes to get hold of the discarded object and then convert them into objects that can be re-used in day-to-day life. Her latest project is converting the Mercedes SL’s dash and seat into an office desk and chair.
The dash is used to make a wonderful office desk with the speed dial converted into a multiple time zone clock. The pedals have been converted to be used as a penholder, air vents as cardholders, and the rearview mirror is used as a desk lamp. If you thought the desk was unique, Thompson has taken the chair and, with the help of craftsman and artisans, converted it into a nice sturdy office chair. Can you imagine sitting in a Mercedes seat at work? How comfortable would that be?
