In the middle of the exhibition 'European Custom Board Show' in Brussels there is a unique piece : the 'Skate'N Chair'. Designed and handcrafted by the Roarockit Skateboard Europe team. This chair is made of curved Skateboards of Canadian bird's eye and curly maple, skate trucks, skate wheels and an ultra-resistant varnish.
This artwork was created for two major reasons:
The first is to provide funding for the benefit of the organization Skateistan through the sale of this piece at the exhibition. Skateistan is an NGO that provides safe spaces where children can play, learn new skills and make friends, explore their own abilities and enjoy the childhood they deserve. Skateistan empowers children through Skateboarding and education programs and helps create future leaders for a better world. In parallel, the Chalk Custom Board Project collective will, throughout the summer, customize boards which will also be for the benefit of NGO Skateistan.
So if the approach appeals to you, if the Skate'N chair catches your eye, you know what you have to do! :-)
