Over the past two years, staff at the office, headquartered in Oslo, have studied the topic of environmental pollution from plastic waste. As a result, the designers decided to change the attitude of society towards waste and decided to use recycled plastic in production.
Sourced from the Norwegian fish farming industry, the chair boasts one of the lowest carbon footprints on the market.
According to Designboom, worn out fishing nets, ropes and drainpipes were shredded for the hull and received granulate, which gave the authors of the project complete creative freedom.
The S-1500 chair is similar to the classic R-48 model from the Norwegian designer Brendt Winge, which he invented in the late 1960s and implemented with the help of the furniture factory Nordic Comfort Products (NCP). She also joined the Snøhetta design project.
The company clarifies that they are ready to release a series of chairs, and the pattern on the surface of each of them will not be repeated due to the difference in the quality of the original recycled plastic.
Through innovation and design, Snøhetta hopes to push society towards recycling and hopes that their project will contribute to a recyclable economy.>
