An Elegant Chair Made From Salvaged Fishing Nets

This simple, unassuming plastic chair is more important than it seems. Made from collected and discarded plastic fishing nets and ocean trash, it represents an important step in the movement to salvage trash and repurpose harmful waste into useful goods.

Created by Snøhetta for the company Nordic Comfort Products, it is deep green with a marbling look to it. It’s called the S-1500, and it will retail for an affordable $100. Another small win for the planet.
