DESKTOP CHAIR is a single structural office chair made of biodegradable plastic. With Spine, 15° Tilt system, Suspender and topology optimization engineering, it is much lighter, cheaper than conventional office chairs and also structurally stable. To prevent unnecessary waste of materials, the chair was made only with materials that can function stably according to the weight of a specific user through the stage of topology optimization engineering. The chair has the equal functionality as it has the same density as general petroleum plastics, but DESKTOP CHAIR is 100% biodegraded by microorganisms in soils upon disposal within 6 months.
