Architecture design studio Snøhetta introduces the new S-1500 chair, constructed from an angle that highlights sustainability and environmental awareness. It uses materials such as recycled plastic and steel -- the body is made from plastic waste from discarded fishnets and the frame is made from reworked steel. The chair is crafted in collaboration with Nordic Comforts Products and draws in local fish farming firms to gather materials.

The fish farming firms supply the design duo with materials such as pipes, ropes, and fishnets that go through a process that grounds it into a new substance. this substance is then transformed into a mold that sets the foundation of the S-1500 chair. From the exterior, the chair shows off a dark green appearance and boasts a similar textile to marble. This enables designers the liberty to experiment with a plethora of surface pattern designs.
