Eco-design is an innovative sector full of potential to introduce the use of recyclates. Aware of PVC's potential, Swiss designer Cédric Carles (www.atelier2ce.org) conceived a chair made from extruded, calendered sheets.

His creation is a model of eco-design; it can be completely disassembled and it uses Pevetex® fabric and stainless steel tubing and screws that are completely recyclable. It's suitable for use indoors and outdoors.

This relaxing chair is made by calendering a thick PVC sheet mixed with Pevetex®, which comes from waste. The PVC textile sheet, produced by RENOLIT, is supported by fabric obtained by the densification procedure of Chaize, a Recovinyl network member. In this particular case, the PVC waste comes from end-of-life vehicle upholstery.
