Osisu wins the DEmark Award for Java Stools made from use coffee.

Osisu is a Thai Brand that produces Contemporary venacular design inspired by environmental concerns.  They are proponents of green products, up cycling, eco-products, green design and the using of waste materials.

Osisu produces functional art that integrates local crafts and skilled carpentry with contemporary aesthetics. Each model of OSISU is pure passion, hand-crafted from materials left to waste at construction sites, manufacturing facilities or local communities.  Their creations exemplify a commitment to environmentally responsible design while meeting functional requirements.

This year Osisu’s collaboration with Sonite resulted in Java Stools and earned them the Design Excellence Award 2012 (DEmark) from Thailand’s Ministry of Commerce in the Furniture category. The Java Stools were created from used ground coffee.

The multi-colored stools take on a simple shape similar to stone furniture. The design is meant to tell people that what we waste in abundance is capable of producing usable objects.
