Satelliet’s sustainability bar is high; by 2030, 75% of its products must be made from sustainable and/or recycled materials.
However, this is not just about recycled materials, it is about adding value through collaborative innovation bringing people and products together. The goal of being the most sustainable supplier of hospitality furniture in Europe in 8 years is becoming real possibility.
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.”
The idea for the Code collection grew out of the previous sustainable models developed by Satelliet. The chair consists of 100% ‘post-consumer waste’ in Indonesia, which is waste that has been used by a consumer, disposed of and diverted from landfills.
Making Code consists of two parts:
- The frame is built using recycled aluminium that is remelted, reshaped to extrude tubes; and then welded to the chair frame shape. The frame is then suspended sprayed with a powder coat that is then put in the oven to liquify and harden into a strong, beautiful layer of colour on the aluminium frame.
- The seat is made out of recycled plastic that is sorted by colour and remelted to create the distinctive base colour that has a splattering of speckles to give the finished look. A mould is used to create the seat shape and back before being mounted on to the frame.
Code is stackable, has a UV resistant coating and is available in four striking colours: ocean blue, forest green, desert yellow and galaxy black.
The chair is suitable for indoor and outdoor use making it the perfect showstopper wherever it ends up in your venue.
The Code Series will be available from March 2023, you can out more about how to order by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
