The next time you find yourself hurrying between classes, take a moment to stop and relax. New clusters of black Adirondack chairs are popping up across the Colleges’ campus providing the perfect space to catch your breath.
The new chairs are environmentally friendly—made of recycled milk bottles, and arranged around the campus to create quiet areas for reading, conversation or simply to relax.
“We wanted something that made an environmental statement,” said Chris Button, Buildings and Grounds’ Senior Project Manager. “We picked locations where they could be seen, and minutes after we placed them they were occupied.”
The 16 Adirondack chairs can be found in front of the Book Store, by the Library Patio, near Smith Hall, on the William Smith drive and in front of Eaton and Trinity Halls.
The chairs, manufactured by Poly~Wood, can be viewed on the company’s website.
