Our planet is struggling these years, and it seems as if it has never been more obvious, that we need to take action in regards to improving the environment. We are facing a global recycling crisis with waste plastics filling the oceans, being dumped carelessly on land and blown or washed into the sea.
The Ocean collection is a reimagined table-and-chair collection (originally designed in 1955) in ocean waste plastic, combining innovative solutions to prevent pollution of the world's oceans - with one of the 20th century's most renowned designers, Joergen & Nanna Ditzel. The series is characterized by its light structure with repeated slats and metal frames, made and tested for outdoor use.
While 1 kilo of recycled plastics raw material saves some 1.7 kilos of CO2, one single Ocean Chair saves 1.6 kilos of CO2 emissions savings compared to virgin equivalents - demonstrating a CO2 emissions saving up to 82%. One Ocean chair uses some 960g of ocean plastic waste.
The original design from 1955 was steel framed and timber veneer pieces. The reissues have been scaled up by five percent to accommodate modern proportions, but otherwise their form remains identical. The series' simple shapes and lightness epitomize the Ditzels' design sensibility, which was at once precise, practical and playful.
Joergen & Nanna Ditzel, Bagsvaerd 1950's originally produced by Kolds Savværk until the late 1950s, the chair and two tables were first designed for the Ditzels' personal use. Available with recycled plastic slats (variation in color is possible due to upcycled materials) in a choice of colors and metal frame with a gun metal finish. The Collection includes tables and chairs.
