Furniture firm offers seat formed from old PS2s

Gaming goes green

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Swanky suburban store Selfridges is to sell a chair made from recycled PlayStation 2 games consoles.

Have you seen my PS2 anywhere?

The Reee chair’s back and seat are made from the plastic casings of nine PS2s, which maker Pli Design stated saves 2.4kg of “post-consumer” plastic from ending up in landfill.

Whether the firm used the old, fat PS2 or the newer, slimmer model is anyone’s guess. But if you’re looking for a modern way to highlight your eco-gaming credentials, then a chair made from old PS2s could be right up your alley.

The chair’s legs are made from powder-coated steel and the whole thing can be disassembled - but probably not melted back into a PS2.

Pli Design’s Reee chair goes on sale in Selfridges from 10 September, priced at £100 (€123/$178).
