New sustainable chair - designed by Snøhetta was launched in February 2019 at the furniture fair in Stockholm. The S-1500 has already received a great deal of international attention.
The chair shells are made from 100% recycled plastic waste from fish farms on the Helgeland coast. By choosing an S -1500 chair, you have helped to remove 1500 grams of plastic waste, and thus significantly reduced CO2 emissions compared to choosing a chair made of virgin plastic. 8 different standard shell colors are now available in the Ocean palette TM. The chair legs comes in matching colors to the shell, or you can put together other color combinations from our color chart.
In collaboration with Snøhetta, NCP has done something new and groundbreaking in sustainable furniture production. The story is shown in the movie below.
The S-1500 chair is born out of a Snøhetta-initiated exploration project on plastic, to understand it as a material, its journey and footprint in the value chain, as well as its inherent qualities. Could we shift the public's attitude towards used plastic from regarding it as waste to seeing it as a valuable resource that should be employed in new ways once it has served its original purpose?
As a result of this exploration, Snøhetta collaborated with furniture manufacturer Nordic Comfort Products (NCP) to develop a chair with a body made from 100 % recycled plastic from the local fish farming industry in the North of Norway, and a subframe made from recycled steel
