Electronic devices, toys and even stadium seats have been given a second chance, taking the shape of these fantastic diamond seats dubbed ’100%’. Made with a low-energy rotomolding technique, these speckled polyhedrons are hollow, low-cost, durable and very precious. Created by one of Chile’s most celebrated designers, Rodrigo Alonso, the 100% seats are made entirely out of – you guessed – 100% recycled plastic.

Alonso designed the 100% seats as part of a collection for the Chilean urban equipment company Fahneu. Created for taking a rest within urban public areas, its beautiful recycled aesthetic screams “sustainability”. And best of all? They can be recycled again, “reincarnating” into electronic devices, toys and even stadium seats!
