A perfect example of “Cradle to Cradle” design and 99% recyclable was this chair.
The design process considered the entire lifecycle of the contemporary chair by using only three different parts, metal frame (1x), Expanded Poly Propylene seat half (2x) and plastic stopper (4x).
The furniture design included 95% air and only 5% material due to made out of 100% recyclable EPP (Expanded Polypropylene). Combining 2 colors, the snap could be designed and customers could easy upholster.
A chair for Belgian furniture brand Feek featuring a two-colour seat of two parts that snap together was created by Designer Karim Rashid. The chair design comprised of a metal frame, which supports two expanded-polypropylene pieces that the seat and backrest were formed. It would be released at Interieur 08 in Kortrijk, Belgium, in October.
