Felt

Chair

by Vepa

Why is it sustainable?

Felt is a chair made of Oeko-Tex certified felt produced from PET bottles, with 60 bottles used for every seat.
 
The same seat can be adapted on 4 different types of legs, giving more options for one single component. At the end of a chair's lifecycle, all components can easily be disassembled and reused in new production processes. Both these design aspects make this chair a good example of circular design.
 
All production takes place in the Netherlands and many manufacturing offcuts are repurposed, making the process nearly zero-waste. Vepa is also updating and repairing existing products (refurbishing) and using old components to make new products (remanufacturing). Packaging cardboard is often recycled.
