Architecture studio Snøhetta is working towards a more circular economy with its latest chair design, which is made from recycled plastic and steel taken from Norwegian fish farming industries.
Snøhetta’s S-1500 chair, which features a body made entirely from waste plastic and a subframe made from repurposed steel, was unveiled at Stockholm Design Week.
Created in collaboration with furniture manufacturer Nordic Comfort Products (NCP), the chair is made using materials recycled from local ﬁsh farming companies in northern Norway that produce large amounts of waste, including Kvarøy Fiskeoppdrett and Nova Sea.
These firms supply NCP with discarded ﬁsh nets, ropes and pipes left over from their operations, which are processed and ground into a granulate substance that can then be injected into a mould.
