Kartell has employed a revolutionary material to present a sustainable item of furniture with an industrial background that is both high quality and highly creative.
This so-called Organic Chair is made from BIODURATM, a material obtained from renewable raw materials, and was designed by Antonio Citterio. The Organic Chair’s main characteristics are its overall quality and those little details. The raw material is organic in nature and comes from renewable plant-based sources that will not disrupt food pro- duction. Through a biological process, microorganisms “attack” waste material to create biomass that is similar to plastic. After a series of processes to perfect its composition, this biomass becomes a very high-quality material that Kartell has injection moulded just like other plastics: a rst in the world of furniture.
Kartell has therefore come up with a sustainable design in line with its industrial philosophy based on the concept of quality and durability and that ideally, at the end of its working life, in the right conditions, can re-enter the biological cycle or biodegrade.
Organic Chair is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use as it is extremely durable, which also makes it perfect for the contract market.
