BELL CHAIR By Magis
Stackable recycled polypropylene chair
Polypropylene (PP), Recycled plastic
Bell Chair is available in three colours – Sunrise, High Noon and Midnight. It is produced with recycled polypropylene, which is obtained from the waste generated by Magis’ own furniture production and from the local car industry. The patented material excludes almost all “virgin or new” materials and can be 100% recycled again after use. This way, Bell Chair forms an almost closed material cycle.
The chair weighs just 2.7 kilograms, making it at least one and a half kilos lighter than average plastic chairs. This fact is testament to the use of less material and causes less energy consumption during production. The key to this saving lies in its ingenious shell shape of the chair. Its bulbous geometry is not only structurally strong, it also makes the chair extraordinarily comfortable and visually appealing.
The responsibility of the design does not end with the product itself. Magis developed a logistics concept for Bell Chair to save additional resources. This entails a specially-designed reusable delivery pallet, which can stack up to 24 chairs. As a result, less packaging material is used, and the vertical stack reduces the footprint during transportation. At the same time the pallet doubles up as store display for retail partners and is made from the same recycled plastic as the chair.
Bell Chair is made with versatility in mind and can be used indoors, outdoors, for commercial use, events, and many other settings. It is meant to be used in creative, unconventional and innovative ways.
