100% Recycled 100% Recyclable


We’ve expanded our Pato concept with a version that’s not only recyclable, it’s made entirely from 100% recycled plastic – Pato.
A move that exemplifies our ongoing efforts to help protect the environment, seen in this series of versatile,
long-lasting designs that contribute to the circular economy.

 Minimize Waste

We minimize waste from the commercial and the industrial sectors
by using upcycled plastic from two sources.



Plastic waste from industrial production animation

 Post-industrial recycled PP

This is plastic waste from the production of other polypropylene products which has been collected and reprocessed for reuse, which makes a zero-waste production line.

Plastic waste from commercial products drawing

 Post-consumer recycled PP

This is used plastic from commercial products, which has been sorted and reclaimed. Typically from household waste such as yogurt container and medicine bottles or from other sources such as discarded fishing nets.

Ready for the future

The final material for Pato is a mix of the softer post-consumer PP
and the more rigid and durable post-industrial PP.
Making each chair both recyclable and durable in use.
