Nic Grobler captured this counter chair made from a car seat at auto spares shop Korean Boyz, on Voortrekker Road in Cape Town. Auto mechanic Hennie Swart who made it, along with other projects from salvaged materials, had this to say about it:

They look very beautiful with nice mags. I haven’t painted it yet – it is an expensive project. The whole thing as it stands there is R1,500. If we add it up, including the seat (which we can sell for R500) it becomes a lot. I also have a top loader washing machine [drum] that I turned into a braai – it is the best braai you can get. Especially with all the little holes in the side it is great for wind.
