Eco Plastic: Green TrendMay 03, 2013
With a surface that combines a smooth plastic finish with a wood grain-effect, the Broom chair by Philippe Starck for American company Emeco is made from 75% waste polypropylene and 15% reclaimed wood fibre.
The exterior shell of Patricia Urquiola's Husk chair for B&B Italia is made from HIREK® - a plastic made from recycled industrial waste.
Benjamin Hubert's Pod chair for De Vorm has a steam-bent ash frame and a pressed felt seat made from recycled plastic bottles.
Un Stool by Studio PARCHITECTS features a eco-plastic structure and a detachable sustainable plywood component. The plastic is made from 100% post-consumer & pre-consumer recycled plastic waste such as milk jugs, detergent bottles, plastic bags and flowerpots.
Last year Philippe Starck's Miss Sissi lamp for Flos was given a green makeover when it was reproduced in MINERV-PHA™ - a top-performing, water-biodegradable biopolymer made from the waste of sugar beet and cane production. Produced by Italian company Bio-on, the Miss Sissi lamp was the first design object to be made using the new plastic.
