Sustainable Hospitality, The Code Series!

|October 7, 2022 | Blogs, News

Satelliet’s sustainability bar is high; by 2030, 75% of its products must be made from sustainable and/or recycled materials. Sustainability is more than just recycled materials, it is also about putting value on collaborations. Great initiatives and collaborations make sustainability possible in terms of both people and products. It is therefore a real mission and one that we are working hard to become the most sustainable supplier of hospitality furniture in Europe in just under eight years’ time.

Furniture from the SUM (Still Usable Materials) collection is expanding all the time. Purchasing director Robin Willemse explains what this means: “We know how to make furniture from different high-quality and reusable materials, such as organic residual waste or PET felt. We manage to make a collection of furniture from these. We have also been applying wickerwork made of completely recycled plastic and frames made of recycled aluminium for some time. This furniture was developed in cooperation with our partners abroad. And from these learnings, the newcomer Code is now being made.”

Post consumer waste

The idea for Code grew out of the previous sustainable models developed by Satelliet. The chair consists of 100% ‘post consumer waste’ and is made in Indonesia. The process to make Code is twofold. The frame of the chair is made of recycled aluminium. First, the old aluminium is collected and re-melted. This renewed material is then used to extrude tubes. A frame is then welded and coloured by powder coating. The chair is suspended and during the electrostatic process, the powdered colour coating is sprayed onto the frame. In the oven, the powder liquefies before hardening into a strong, beautiful layer on the aluminium frame.

The seat and back are made of recycled plastic. The plastics are sorted by colour and then re-melted, creating the distinctive base colour with cheerful speckles. The shapes of the seat and back are made in a mould. Once these are ready, they are mounted on the frame. The chair is available in different colours: ocean blue, forest green, desert yellow and galaxy black. Code is stackable and has a UV-resistant coating. This makes the chair not only suitable for indoor use, it is also the perfect showstopper on your terrace. Those who dare to opt for a colourful, cheerful, cool interior will be right with Code.

The Code Series will be available from March 2023, Please enquire at info@satelliet.co.uk.
