We’ve previously written about ocean plastic rain jackets, sneakers and stockings, but never about a chair, and now here it is: the Ocean Chair by Copenhagen-based design studio Mater.

The conscious and ethical brand recently launched a reimagined version of the 1950’s design classic by Danish designer Nanna Ditzel, which is now updated with slightly scaled up proportions and an eco-friendly material selection; the relaunch is crafted using recycled plastic waste and discarded fishing nets from the oceans.

The smartly designed garden chair has already received international attention by winning the Wallpaper* Design Award earlier this year, but it doesn’t stand alone. Mater have made it part of a table-and-chair collection, with the purpose of not only offering sustainable design, but preventing the pollution of the world’s oceans according to UN’s “Life Below Water” goal.

All pieces are made from a mix of upcycled ocean plastics and bioplastics, and come with chromed light metal frames. And with circularity in mind, the Ocean Collection is also designed for disassembly, meaning that each component is in its purest form to enable full end-of-life recyclability.  

Check out Mater’s Ocean Collection here.
