The S-1500 chair was born out of Snøhetta’s research project related to plastic, its journey and footprint in the value chain, as well as its inherent qualities. Together with furniture manufacturer Nordic Comfort Products, Norwaigan architecture and design company Snøhetta has developed 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. By eliminating the need to use new raw material in the production, the chair has obtained a carbon footprint which is one of the lowest in the market.
