Chair made of steel and recycled fishing nets

The Ocean chair by Mater was designed by Nanna Ditzel in 1955 and is reinterpreted in cooperation with the Danish cleantech company Plastix and made from recycled fishing nets. The chair consists of a steel frame with burnished surface and seat and backrest made of recycled fishing nets and hard plastic. The chair is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and provides a modern and linear look both 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 from plastic waste into valuable recycled plastic raw materials, so-called "Green Plastics". Approx. 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 clean up with the side effects of our collective consumption patterns, it's a win-win situation for everyone." says Henrik Marstrand, founder and CEO of Mater.

Originally manufactured by Kolds Savværk until the end of the 1950s, the chair and two tables were initially designed for personal use. The first design from 1955 consisted of a steel frame and wood veneer parts. The new editions were increased by five percent to meet modern proportions. Simple forms and the lightness of the series embody the design sensitivity of the Ditzels, which was precise, practical and playful at the same time.

Together with Dennie Ditzel, Mater searched the archive of the Ditzels and selected the chair and the two tables for the Ocean series. In the new edition, the series contributes to reducing plastic waste and achieving points 12, 14, 15 and 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
