Remember the old uncomfortable and unsustainable plastic chairs from your school days? They’re probably still gathering chalk dust somewhere, thick plastic fibres doomed to exist on the earth until the end of days. The NCP-X Snohetta S1500 chair is a game changer – Norwegian company Snohetta has managed to fashion these eco-friendly chairs entirely from recycled plastic, which mostly comes from worn out ropes and fishing nets of local fish-farms in their hometown of Oslo. Manufactured in collaboration with Nordic Comfort Projects, these seats may appear plain on first glance. But on learning more about their origins, production process and the recycled steel sub-frames, you’ll realise that even the unassuming exterior has a fascinating backstory about how the materials it’s comprised of came to be used in this way.
Is this the furniture of the future?
It certainly seems to be heading in that direction.
A beautiful marble, bottled green matte finish combines the old with the new and creates a truly unique product, binding together the earthy qualities of eco-friendly materials to meet modern-day demands.
