It’s probably no surprise by now that we love recycled furniture and homewares. In previous posts we’ve featured products such as a stool made from recycled tyres, a table made from remnants of reclaimed wood, a sundial made from coffee machine cups and, more recently, a chandelier made from milk bottles. Now we have a chair made from 111 recycled plastic Coca-Cola bottles.
The 111 Navy Chair is designed by Emeco and has been produced in conjunction with Coca-Cola. The chair is modelled on the original aluminium Emeco Navy Chair which was created in 1944 for the US Navy.
A great promoter of the benefits of using recycled materials in furniture production, the 111 Navy Chair contains a mix of 60% rPET plastic – recycled polyethylene terephthalate plastic – plus a combination of other materials, including fibre glass, to give it strength.
