Kuskoa Bi is the first biobased, biodegradable and recyclable chair. Designed by Basque designer Jean Louis Iratzoki for Alki, the chair is made with a new material called bioplastic developed by Alki to avoid the environmental problems created by the production of plastic.
“Bioplastic is a polymer with similar characteristics and properties to plastics made from non-renewable fossil fuels. It can be injected, extruded and thermoformed but it is made from 100% plant-based renewable resources (beet, corn starch, sugarcane, etc.). This biobased polymer is fully recyclable and its organic properties mean that, when subjected to an industrial process, it is biodegradable. Moreover, another significant environmental aspect lies in its reduced carbon footprint as bioplastic production results in reduced greenhouse gas emissions.”
The Woodieful chair is another great example of sustainable, multifunctional design. Made by Woodieful, an Slovenian brand by designer Klavdija Jarc, the chair can be used as a stool, a small side table and a magazine rack. Klavidija Jarc says: “I use wood as a main material in my creations. Because wood is the king of materials when we speak about furniture. And wood is beautiful.”
