The Ocean chair by Mater is a design by Nanna Ditzel from 1955 and is reinterpreted in collaboration with the Danish cleantech company Plastix using recycled fishing nets. The chair consists of a steel frame with a burnished surface and seat and backrest made of recycled fishing nets and hard plastic. The chair is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and provides a modern and linear look indoors and outdoors.
Mater uses recycled plastic for the chair from Plastix, one of the world's only mechanical recycling companies. Plastix transforms discarded fishing nets, trawls, ropes and other products of plastic waste into valuable recycled plastic raw material, so-called "Green Plastics". Approximately 960 g of marine plastic waste is used for one chair.
"If we can create a product that is attractive, functional and durable, that we use to clean up the side effects of our collective consumerism, it's a win-win for everyone." , says Henrik Marstrand, founder and CEO of Mater .
Originally manufactured by Kolds Savværk until the late 1950s, the chair and two tables were initially designed for the Ditzels' personal use. The first design from 1955 consisted of steel frames and wooden veneer parts. The new editions were enlarged by five percent to accommodate modern proportions. Simple forms and the lightness of the series embody the Ditzels' design sensibility, which was at once precise, practical and playful.
Together with Dennie Ditzel, Mater searched the Ditzels' archives and selected the chair and the two tables for the Ocean for the series. When reissued, the series will help reduce plastic waste and achieve points 12, 14, 15 and 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
