Released this week, the new Bell chair designed by Konstantin Grcic Design is made from recycled polypropylene, generated by industrial waste. Weighing in at only 2.7kg, the chair weighs almost half of a typical plastic chair which makes it easy to stack and transport around on the specially designed delivery pallet, which is made from the same recycled polypropylene.
The rounded shape of the chair is not only welcoming but is designed to be extremely comfortable and structurally strong.
The chair will be sold by Magis.
– Made from one material – recycled polypropylene generated by industrial waste
– The lightweight nature of the chair and the use of a single material causes less energy consumption during construction
– 100% of the chair can be recycled again after use
– The reusable delivery pallet can stack up to 24 chairs which results in less packaging material required
The aim was to produce a high-quality chair using a bare minimum of material. The ecological aspiration behind the project also helped us to achieve another goal: we wanted BELL to be affordable for everyone!
