Multi-talented Spanish designer Javier Mariscal [1] recently unveiled a recycled plastic chair that is designed for disassembly, inexpensive to produce, and very stylish indeed. Produced by Mobles 114 [2], the Green Chair is made from recycled [3] polypropylene plastic — which can be recycled again at the end of its useful life. The Green Chair is long-lasting, affordable, responsibly produced, and it has been certified under the UNE 150301 eco design standard – these qualities make it perfect for schools, universities, government offices, or chic interior spaces.

Last seen at April’s Milan’s Furniture Fair [4], the Green Chair consists of three interconnected parts that have been screwed together: a plastic back/seat, four legs, and a set of metal connectors. The chair´s folded morphology was created to increase the material’s strength and provide the user with a comfortable ergonomic seat. The chair is currently available with metal or wooden legs, and the speckled grey seat was designed to dismantle easily for future recycling [5]. Best of all, because the chair is produced as a line of individual parts, customers from around the world could buy just the seat and add the rest of the structure using locally sourced materials.
