Earth Stool with Backrest by Eva Harlou for Mater06067
Earth Stool is a circular bar stool designed by Danish architect Eva Harlou. It is the result of a new innovative waste-to-value technique that enables Mater to reuse companies’ industrial waste, e.g. plastic waste and other fiber-based materials and turn it into useful and unique design solutions.
The seats and back are made from upcycled industrial plastic waste from GROHE and coffee bean shells from BKI coffee. The waste materials are mixed in a unique compound suitable for press moulding – a method designed to reuse companies’ resources more efficiently.
Created to support a circular design thinking and the UN SDGs: “Responsible Consumption and Production” (SDGs 12), “Climate Action” (SDGs 13) and “Partnership for the Goals” (SDGs 17). The Earth Stool represents classic Scandinavian design with steel frames making it elegant and timeless.
