Flat-pack chair made from 100% recycled plastic by Tom Robinson
EVOLVE is an elegant flat-pack chair made from 100% recycled and recyclable plastic. Discarded consumer electronics are cleanly crushed, granulated and then fused into strong plastic sheets, saving the petroleum resources and carbon emissions associated with using virgin plastic. These recycled sheets are then machined and handcrafted into structural furniture components Tom Robinson’s London workshop.
Robust metal Domino joints have been discreetly integrated into each of the chair’s components, meaning the end user can assemble and disassemble the chair time and time again using one simple Allen key. Thoughtful ergonomic details frame the different textural layers of this pioneering material. The chair’s weatherproof material composition means it exists comfortably in indoor and outdoor environments.
EVOLVE aims to present recycled plastic as a logical, attractive and robust material to build our future; a material that makes sense.
