The ABC123 Alphabet Block Chair Design Inspires Children to Build
Inhabitots – by Jill Fehrenbacher, 05/24/11
ABC blocks are one of the most classic toys for tots, but as any parent knows, sometimes its hard to resist piling up these colorful little blocks ourselves! A clever idea from the inner child of Benjamin Rollins Caldwell at BRC designs, the colorful ABC123 Chairs have been constructed with hundreds of colorful alphabet wood blocks into a distinctly modern yet playful piece. This fun and funny chair is a perfect eco-alternative to the shoddy plastic children’s furniture that dominate local stores, and are bound to become enduring classics. Kid tested and parent approved, the charming ABC123 Chair is sure to inspire your children to stack with imagination!
We stumbled across this charming chair at the International Contemporary Furniture this year, and were instantly smitten with its playful aesthetic. Designer Benjamin Rollins Caldwell of BRC Designs has long been fascinating the Inhabitat editorial team with his weird and wacky furniture made from household bric-a-brac, such as coffee tables made from motherboards, and chairs made from playing cards, $1 bills and piano keys.
We think he’s come up with a real winner this year in this ABC block chair concept, and we’re hoping he’s able to produce these on a larger scale. I can think of a lot of families with old blocks kicking around who would love a chair like this!
