Ocean Bench

Object

The Ocean Collection is a reimagined table-and-chair collection (originally designed in 1955) in ocean waste plastic, combining innovative solutions to prevent pollution of the world’s oceans – with one of the 20th century’s most renowned designers, Nanna Ditzel. The series is characterized by its light structure with repeated slats and metal frames, made and tested for outdoor use. The ocean waste plastic and recycled plastic (PP) honours the UN Sustainable Development Goals of protecting “Life Below Water” (SDGs 14) and “Responsible Consumption and Production” (SDGs 12) and “Partnership for the Goals” (SDGs 17). The Ocean Collection is designed for disassembly, meaning that the design allows each component in its purest form to recycle into new production circles. Awarded Ocean by Nanna Ditzel represents sustainable and innovative thinking and was awarded Wallpaper* Magazines Design award in early 2019.
