The New Raw studio, based in Rotterdam, is recycling misprints and prototypes from previous furniture projects to create a limited-edition chair. Dubbed the Ermis, the chair is made from a 3D-printed mono-material. The limited-edition monoblock seat was inspired by the brand's mission to repurpose its scrap materials, thereby creating a durable, zero-waste object.
Each Ermis chair is made from layers of polypropylene plastic. The company aimed to find a way to "rescue this material and reduce the volume of waste coming from the research and development o the studio." The chair's design features a gentle color gradient, fading from baby blue to an earth hue of yellow. The Ermis chair includes adhesives, resins, and finishings to finish the design, allowing it to be easily recycled at the end of its life.
