Can stools be endlessly recycled?

Can stools be endlessly recycled?

It's no secret that up-cycling is one of the hottest interior design trends out there right now. That's why we've written this post on a particular piece of furniture that goes beyond up-cycling, and instead makes re-cycling look effortlessly cool! This stool from Emeco, in partnership with Barber & Osgerby, is already one of the most talked-about designs in the interior design world.

The On and On stool is recycled in its entirety from a PET material that is known in the industry as rPET, and is as aesthetically pleasing as it is eco-friendly. rPET is created using recycled PET drinks bottles mixed with fibreglass to create a strong material that can be worked with easily to create interesting designs. There will also be black stools available in this particular design - in this instance the stools are made from car tyres, which is where the black pigment comes from. The product really taps into an increasing conscience amongst furniture buyers when it comes to eco-friendly stats as a purchase consideration.

The stool isn't just a statement piece built to look great - it's incredibly practical too. The on and on stool stacks rotationally with ease, allowing it to take up minimal space when being stored at the end of the day. They have also been designed to be very light with plastic being used in the most efficient way possible. This isn't just great for easy stacking and moving, but better for the earth too; there will be far less carbon emissions as result of shipping in comparison with heavier designs.

This dining chair is something of a statement from its creators, indicating a move towards a brand that works in coordination with a circular economy that helps towards a greener planet. The reasoning behind the name, on and on, is that this chair can be continually recycled if broken, and re-used to make more chairs. It is being launched in Milan as part of the Salone del Mobile, and is sure to cause something of a stir.
