Rubber Ottoman


Hometown Homage, and ottoman for Akron, Ohio. This product celebrates the rubber capitol of the world (Akron, Ohio) and my home town. Using 204 bicycle tire tubes, the ottoman uses a flower-like module thats repeated through out the piece. The bottom of the ottoman resembles the bottom of each module to allow the whole speak to the individual parts.
