The Ocean chair from Mater is a design by Nanna Ditzel from 1955 and in the new interpretation is made from recycled fishing nets in collaboration with the Danish cleantech company Plastix. The chair consists of a steel frame with a burnished finish and seat and backrest made of recycled fishing nets and hard plastic. The chair is suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use and provides a modern and linear look indoors as well as 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 material called "Green Plastics". Approximately 960 grams of marine plastic waste is used to make 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 wood veneer parts. The new editions were enlarged by five percent to fit 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 two tables for the Ocean 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.
