Iskos-Berlin Fiber Chair is an update on the Eames RAR chair with sustainability in mind that debuted at the 2015 Maison&Objet; trade show in Paris.

The Copenhagen-based designers Aleksej Iskos and Boris Berlin settled on a shell composed of 25% wood fiber, 70% polypropylene and 5% colored polypropylene, a decision that took up the majority of their time over the two and a half year period Iskos-Berlin Fiber Chair was in development.

The Iskos-Berlin Fiber Chair is currently available in several subdued neutral tones and uses an array of particular, unique materials. While all the pine wood used is sourced from the same Swedish forest, the coloring of the fiber may differ if the wood is sourced even just 500 m apart.
