Green eco: sustainability at mobles 114, by Ana Villagordo

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.

ECOPACKAGING

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.

GREEN

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.

Artjects: exhibition by Martín Azúa in Vinçon Barcelona

“The designer is the archer aiming at the target (problem) with the desire to hit bulls eye, a place of compromise and balance between the many factors of a project. The artist is another type of archer that shoots the arrow consciously outside of the range, with the will to go and look to what’s beyond the bounds of possibility.”

With this speech, designer Martín Azúa presents his show Artjects at Sala Vinçon Barcelona,  a collection of special objects, which provide unconventional relationships with users, tell and generate stories.

The objects observed in their multiple connections, can be very revealing of how we are and how we could be. Objects have an influence on our behavior, they are active agents and not mere instruments. The rituals that govern these relationships can be as absurd as transcendent.

mobles 114 editions highly recommends this exhibition by the author of designs such as OM armchairs and Flod stool.

World Environment Day: Green chair, by Javier Mariscal

World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. WED is the opportunity for everyone to realize not only the responsibility to care for the Earth and to become agents of change. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.

That’s why mobles 114 editions, as a sensitive and committed company to improve the quality of life and planet preservation, wants to celebrate this day and the design of its most ecofriendly product: Green chair, 100% recycled and 100% recyclable.

 

The Green Chair is an ecological and environmental-friendly project produced with polypropylene from the recycling of industrial waste.

 

 

Here you can see the making of the Green chair, step by step:

 

Green is available in two versions: with wooden or steel frame with cataphoresis for inside and outdoor use; and in two colours: grey RAL 7006, and black RAL 9004.
