A comfortable chair in recycled plastic by Stefan Borselius – Skandiform

A comfortable chair in recycled plastic, where we replaced the traditional fiberglass with hemp fiber. This makes the chair lighter and gives it a low CO2 footprint, about 80% lower than similar plastics. The hemp also gives the plastic a softer and warmer tone, almost a textile feltfeeling in wood color.

The metal legs are available in different colors, with and without armrests, linkable, stackable or with wheels. The chair is made of plastic or upholstered in fabric, varying colors and can be combined almost endlessly.

“We wanted to develop a chair that would be easy to use and comfortable to sit on – taking the opportunity to combine different materials and components based on how the chair is going to be used. With the moulded seat and back, I have been able to work with soft edges and details to design a chair with classic – yet still unique – features. It feels even better to have been able to work with a new material that has a low climate impact.”
