Frankfurt-based artist, Mike Bouchet transformed the common shopping cart into a recliner.
He did not cut cut and spread the damn thing. The carts' childseats are remounted to serve as headrests, allowing one to readjust it to a comfortable height. There is a slight spring to the design, reinforced at major stress points in order to retain structural integrity over time and use.
Did you know one of the first shopping carts was introduced on June 4, 1937, the invention of Sylvan Goldman, owner of the Piggly Wiggly supermarket chain in Oklahoma City? Recent shopping cart usually costs around 120 bucks each. It is not cheap. The damage of shopping cart theft is said $800 million globally every year.
