Earth Stool is a round bar stool designed by the Danish architect Eva Harlou. Earth Stool is the result of a new innovative waste-to-value technology that enables Mater to recycle corporate industrial waste, e.g. plastic waste and other fiber-based materials.
The seats are made of insulin pens in collaboration with Novo Nordisk and coffee bean shells from BKI coffee or waste from Carlsberg’s beer production – used grain – mixed with industrial plastic waste. The technique has been developed in collaboration with the Danish Technological Institute with support from the University of Copenhagen. The waste materials are mixed and cast – a method designed to recycle companies’ resources more efficiently. Earth Stool represents classic Scandinavian design with steel frames that make the bar stool elegant and timeless.
