Plastix has supplied our recycled plastics raw materials, OceanIX, from used waste fishing net to @Mater Chair and Table
Congratulations to Mater, CEO Henrik Marstrand & Team, and Dennie Ditzel for achieving this prestigious “Best Net Gain” Wallpaper* Design Award 2019.
At Plastix we are extremely proud of having supplied our OceanIX plastics raw materials made from used, waste fishing nets, for the upcycling re-issue of this 1955 design icon, a beautiful garden chair, originally designed by Dennie’s parents, Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel.
A single chair uses some 960g of waste fishnet, while the collection’s large table repurposes 1,320g, equivalent to a ECO footprint of more than 3,7 kg. CO2 emissions savings per chair and table compared to using virgin plastics.
We are so pleased that some designers take the lead in demonstrating sustainable and responsible production as outlined in UN SDG No. 12. Well done Mater and Dennie Ditzel.
