We are honoured and proud that the jury awarded the IF Design Award 2021 to the The Hale Chair.
The design of Hale was inspired by the classic school chair and is designed together with De Vorm. Simple, functional, no-nonsense. These principles are not only reflected in the way it looks, but also in how it’s made. The seat and the back of the chair are produced from PET Felt, recycled plastic bottles. This technology brought many traditional production steps to one smart 3D pressing technique.
We are very happy and proud because the jury awarded Hale chair with a Red Dot Award 2020 in the category Product Design!
Hale series is inspired by the well-known school chair. To make the Hale chair, we stretched the limits of our PET Felt and we have cut down production to just one step. It is a simple-looking chair, with a lot of smart technology under its belt. Maybe you won’t see it, but you will feel it when you take a seat.
