Dubbed “Vivid Monochrome,” the chair was designed with SOTTSASS’ famous Bacteria characteristic in mind, and is inspired by the lively movement of the bacteria. The padded seat and backrest — held together by a tubular steal frame — are covered in pinqponq‘s fabric, which is created from 100% recycled PET bottles. This should resonate well with both design and environmentalist, as pinqponq continues to push for sustainability in the fashion world.
The limited Freischwinger “Vivid Monochrome” collaborative chair will be on display during the International Furniture and Interiors fair being held in Cologne this week. Interested buyers can purchase the chair for €680 EUR (approximately $756 USD) a piece. Head over to pinqponq’s site for more details.
For more sustainable designs, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics will be using cardboard beds for athletes.
