This picture shows us once again: the beautiful plastic chair is used everywhere. Even in such great hights.
This is from Abetifi – in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Abetifi is the highest habitable place in Ghana and I was at the right place at right time to take this shot after a marriage ceremony. Abetifi is a very nice place to be with a great weather.
Hi Henning, these are some chairs and how they are used in Kuwait. One is at the Garage where my car is getting its maintenance – the oil films shows on the chairs – the other one at the construction site and partly repaired. The scaffolding around the chairs is still impressing me even I am such a long time here in the Middle East.
The aftermath of the Deutsche Welle feature still brings waves of gorgeous plastic chair submissions. And a) I still have a lot of manual work to do with them b) I am quiet busy with family and job duties in the moment and c) don’t want to fire away all at once so that each picture gets the top spot for a while.
So don’t stop submitting and don’t get concerned or angry if it takes a while. Every chair will get its place on the map eventually. Like this great one from F. Fraedrich, a German engineer living in Saudia Arabia:
Here is my share to your world wide collection. Especially for the picture taking I washed them properly. They get dusty very quickly as the nearby desert (and the Sahara on the other side of the Red Sea) is present all the time.
Further on the don’t last long as sommer heat brittles the plastic a lot.
One has to be carefully taking palce on them. Shurely after 5 years latest. So one always have be aware of breaking in with it.

Hello! My name is Laura and I live in a very beautiful Latvian city of Liepāja. Also called the “city of winds”. It`s next to the Baltic Sea and here sometimes is really windy, but also very beautiful.
Watched a TV show about plastic bags and chairs. It mentioned plasticchair.org I think that your project is very interesting. I remembered that I have one on the balcony. This chair was found when I moved here last summer. it’s dirty, because it was used for repair works in apartment.
I guess this chair is just cleanable if needed again. Otherwise, I can always recommend the plastic chair refurbish method from Love hue Design.
Oh, and by the way: I can verify that Liepāja is quiet nice. I passed that town on my bicycle when cycling from Olstyn (Poland) to Tallinn (Estland) waaaay back in 1999.
I’m always happy to see that I am not the only one cherishing plastic chairs as an indoor furniture.
Hi. My name is Wacu and I am from Nairobi, Kenya. Pictured is a white plastic chair in my room. I use it often when I’m reading or making crafts. This was taken on January 27th, 2014 on a hot afternoon.
While focussing on one picture from EVERY country and with a bunch of great pictures (from India, Sri Lanka, Finnland, Canada, Greece, Austira and much more) in cue, I still got to release this new submission instantaneously:
