LJ series for De Vorm

By 22-04-2015

Laurens van Wieringen designed for furniture label De Vorm an innovative series of chairs made from PET bottles.

The seats are entirely made from recycled PET bottles. The bottles are processed into a soft, sturdy, durable and UV-resistant type of felt with good acoustic properties and great sitting comfort. The seats are formed using a smart 3D printing technique. De Vorm deliberately chooses to use environmentally friendly materials and to produce these close to home to preserve manufacturing expertise and labor in the region.

During the international interior design show imm Cologne, the LJ series was awarded the Interior Innovation Award 2015 – Best of Best. The jury described the LJ series as an economic product full of character.
