Fritz Hansen’s new N02 chair by nendo is made of recycled plastic from household waste
Inspired by a simple crease of paper on designer Oki Sato’s work table.
N02 Recycle is a new, all-purpose, strong and stackable chair from Fritz Hansen. It is the brand’s first chair produced in coloured, recycled Polypropylene. The shell is made of circular plastic, meaning it is made of recycled plastic that can be recycled again if necessary. The plastic used for N02 Recycle comes from household, plastic waste collected, processed and upcycled in central Europe, reducing transportation.
— The fact that the material is constructed from everyday recycled plastic creates an extra connection between the user and the chair. It’s an accessible design made for everyday use and made from everyday recycled, household plastics, says Oki Sato of nendo.
7 shell colour options are inspired by earthy, warm tones in Scandinavian nature.
— We wanted to do a versatile, plastic, stacking chair in recycled materials. Collaborating with studio nendo meant the design would be simple and elegant, a really nice blend of Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics, says Christian Andresen, Head of Design at Fritz Hansen.Fritz Hansennendo studioOki SatoFritz Hansen N02 Recycle ChairChristian Andresen
