Eco Chair

Sexy design, sustainable materials and manufacturing — it doesn’t get much better than that, so we’re glad to find more from Voxia. The Eco chair is made from bent birch plywood sourced from sustainably-managed forests near the production plant, which is rotary cut into peeled veneer, so as to use the whole tree trunk. Because they’re made by pressure-bending the wood, they use about 1/8th the wood of conventional furniture, and they’re stackable, thanks to their smart design. Nearly 100% of the material is used.
