Green ECO designed by Javier Mariscal is a seat in recycled and recyclable polypropylene, and wooden or metallic structure. Conceived in a sustainable way during all its lifecycle, Green has achieved a reduction of 65,7% environmental impact compared to a no ecodesigned chair of similar characteristics. Green chair is formed by a modular structure easily disassembled in recycled and recyclable materials and PEFC certified wood.
Transport has been environmentally optimized also, creating a packaging of two Green chairs disassembled in a cardboard box, also recycled and recyclable, small and easily stackable. Boxes can be stored and distributed efficiently.
Dark grey and black in chairs explain its origins: a recycled material is never the same, so each Green chair is a unique piece of furniture, with an unknown past and a new future. A seat that achieves its function thanks to an excellent ergonomy, timeless and unpretentious design which becomes a good design.
Locally manufactured, Green ECO is designed following a sustainable process, marked by ISO 14006 in conception, materials, making, materials, transport, use and end of lifecycle.
An affordable price; a good design, integral and coherent; timeless and high quality of upcycled materials; make Green ECO a great chance to improve our environment and society from our chairs.
