SSDr Chair - Recycled Plastic
TIPTOE’s mission is to make sustainable furniture that is altogether well-designed, well-made in Europe, and built-to-last.
The SSDr chair is the result of 1.5 years of challenging and hard work towards creating a beautiful, useful, and sustainable piece of furniture. In the furniture industry, the use of recycled plastic is almost inexistent. TIPTOE’s SSDr chair is additional proof that plastic waste can be turned into timeless and durable items. In this version of the SSD chair, the seat and backrest are not made of wood but recycled PP plastic. PP or polypropylene is a widely-used type of plastic found in food containers, household appliances, automotive parts, and more.
The monochrome look of the SSDr chair makes it an elegant and contemporary chair.
In line with TIPTOE’s product design DNA, the SSDr chair legs are made of steel and come in the same colors as the TIPTOE table legs. These colors have been carefully curated to match with the wood of the TIPTOE tables. The SSDr chair seat has been designed with comfort in mind. The tilt and roundness of its curves let you sit comfortably on it for long periods. The SSDr chair ergonomics have been accounted for to make it suitable both as an office as a dining chair.
SSDr is simple: it assembles in 2 minutes with just one screw and is made of only 5 easily-replaceable parts.
SSDr is strong: 100% made in Europe with small and medium enterprises with exceptional know-how, including our family factory based in France, near Chamonix.
SSDr is durable: it is made of durable materials and delivered in a flat packaging made of at least 80% recycled paper. The SSDr pack is about 3 times more compact than a conventional chair, reducing CO2 emissions during storage and shipping.
SSDr is recycled: the backrest and seat of the SSDr chair are made from recycled PP plastic.
TIPTOE uses recycled PP plastic (polypropylene) because of its specific technical and mechanical properties combining flexibility and resistance. PP or polypropylene is a widely-used type of plastic found in food containers, household appliances, automotive parts, and more.
The PP plastic is collected, sorted, and cleaned throughout the process before being crushed into small parts. It is then processed into pellets, which are melted and injected into a custom-made mold. Whereas many furniture pieces are made of virgin PP plastic, very few are actually made of recycled plastic.
TIPTOE’s goal is to show plastic waste can be given a second life and recycled into desirable, long-lasting, and useful furniture. Not only is the SSDr chair made of recycled plastic, but it is also 100% recyclable.
