POTATO CHAIR

0,75 m H x 0,60 m W x 0,85 m L

Stop worrying about sustainability and take a seat in this "Potato chair" .

The chair is first and foremost an indestructible product, but also the result of a collaboration between local industry, product development and the designer himself.

Built to last a lifetime

The story of this chair starts with a batch of discarded conveyor belts from a potato sorting machine that the designer bought from a farmer. The belts are made from spring steel and triple reinforced rubber. This is how the idea arose to make an elegant but hard-wearing chair in times of mass production and planned obsolescence.

There is no mounting material in the stackable chair, making the seat easily adjustable. Each frame has a numbered and signed label.

In the meantime, due to success and the exhaustion of the old belts, a new version has been developed in collaboration with Etre-Moderne and the original manufacturer of the conveyor belts.

First and foremost, the chair had to remain an indestructible product, but certainly also the result of a fair cooperation between local industry, product development and the designer.

Built to last forever

In addition to the standard version in bare steel with a wax layer, an outdoor version is now also available in solid stainless steel that can stay outside all seasons.
