A new, all-purpose chair from Fritz Hansen made from upcycled plastic, household waste.
N02 Recycle is a strong, stackable chair by Japanese studio nendo inspired by a simple crease of paper on the designer’s work table. The chair’s elegant shell is circular plastic, meaning it is made of recycled plastic that can be recycled again if necessary. The plastic for N02 Recycle comes from household, plastic waste collected, processed and upcycled in central Europe. Leg and shell options make N02 a strong solution for a variety of contract settings such as meeting rooms, canteens and presentation spaces. Soft edges make this chair extremely comfortable for extended periods of time. Please note that variations in colour may occur in recycled plastic.
Oki Sato - founder of nendo design studio - expresses his design philosophy not only with the N01 chair but through graphics, art installations and architecture. He was born in Toronto, Canada and later moved to Tokyo, where he took a M.A. in Architecture at Waseda University. In 2002, he founded the nendo studio and today nendo have their name on both architectural projects as well as grand furniture designs worldwide. nendo's philosophy states that, in the same way that life is full of little "!" moments - or moments of surprise and richness - so are their designs. "Nendo" means 'modelling clay' in Japanese - a term perfectly suited to the studio’s sculptural approach to design no matter the material. For their work, nendo has been awarded with Dezeen, Wallpaper and Red Rot Design Awards among many more throughout the studio's lifetime. If you sit on it, you will notice that this is a Fritz Hansen chair. If you live with it, you will realise that this is pure Japanese design.
