Design Eva Harlou, 2020
Gun metal steel frame, industrial waste
Made by Mater

Earth Stool is a circular bar stool designed by Danish architect Eva Harlou. Earth Stool is the result of a new innovative waste-to-value technique that enables Mater to reuse companies' industrial waste, e.g. plastic waste and other fibre-based materials.

The seats are made from insulin pens in collaboration with Novo Nordisk and coffee bean shells from BKI coffee or waste from Carlsberg's beer production - the spent grain - mixed with post-industrial plastic waste. The technique is developed in collaboration with Danish Technological Institute with support from the University of Copenhagen. The waste materials are mixed in a unique compound suitable for press molding - a method designed to reuse companies' resources more efficiently. Earth Stool represents classic Scandinavian design with steel frames that make the bar stool elegant and timeless.

The new ground-breaking production technique allows Mater to reuse waste materials and turn it into useful and unique design solutions. Created to support a circular design thinking and the UN SDGs: "Responsible Consumption and Production" (SDGs 12), "Climate Action" (SDGs 13) and "Partnership for the Goals" (SDGs 17).

Founded in 2006, Mater is a Danish design brand with a strong vision to create timeless and beautiful design based on an ethical business strategy. Mater combines exclusive high end design with working methods that support people, local craft traditions and the environment.

The Coffee edition seat & back rest includes PC/ABS Novo Nordisk plastic and coffee shell waste. The Mask edition seat & back rest includes waste from Carlsberg beer productions mixed with upcycled plastic. Please note that variations are possible due to upcycled materials.
