Sustainable Furniture Made From Agricultural Waste and Poop

Would you sit on a stool that had actual stool in it?

Why has everybody stopped coming to my dinner parties? I haven't changed anything, only just swapped all my furniture for these stools made of dirt and cattle manure and.... Oh.

Just kidding. I, for one, would still sit on these simple and super-sustainable stools from the Tel Aviv-based designer Adital Ela. Looking like mud-covered beehives or chocolate bollards, the stools are made of compacted earth, construction debris and organic wastes like spent agricultural fibers and cow flop. Despite requiring little energy to fabricate (mostly elbow grease), their shape makes them strong enough to support quite copious rumps. And if they do break or you get bored of them, you can just wetten and mash the material and use it to sculpt new furniture.
