Product Description

We love this chair ! The most sustainable chair in the world. Smart Ocean is the embodiment of a commitment to sustainable manufacturing and incorporates almost 2 pounds of recycled fishing net. With the same Form-Sensing Mesh Technology and simple functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean instantly adjusts you. With modern clean lines it suits any office environment.

Smart Ocean untilizes material from discarded ocean fishing nets collected and recycled by Bureo, an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution. The nets are transformed into plastic pellets and then used to manufacture Smart Ocean chairs. Smart Ocean is the first-ever ergonomic chair to be built with recycled net and is also certified by the International Living Future Institute to the full Living Product Challenge — meeting the most tough sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.
