The SSDr chair : Simple Strong Durable and… Recycled

Summer 2020

Offering lasting solutions for sustainability

Since 2015, TIPTOE’s mission has been to make sustainable furniture that is altogether well-designed, well-made in Europe and built-to-last.

 

Over the years, the negative impact of plastic waste on the environment has become more and more obvisous. Whereas 400 million tons of plastic are currently produced each year, the OECD estimates that only 9% of all plastic produced between 1950 and 2015 has been recycled.

 

At TIPTOE, we strive on a daily basis to address environmental issues by providing long-term and viable solutions in the furniture industry. In addition to making long-lasting and timeless furniture, we use recycled and upcycled materials at the very core of our design and fabrication processes. With the new chair, we aim at showing that it is possible to give waste a second life by turning it into beautiful, useful and timeless pieces of furniture.

Simple, Strong, Durable and Recycled

The SSDr is a chair Simple Strong Durable and Recycled.

The SSDr chair is the result of 1.5 years of challenging and hard work towards the creation of a beautiful, useful and sustainable piece of furniture. In the furniture industry, the use of recycled plastic is almost inexistant and we see the SSDr chair as an additional proof that plastic waste can be turned into timeless and durable items. It is a new milestone in our mission to create sustainable furniture.

In this version of the SSD chair, the seat and backrest are not made of wood but of recycled PP plastic. PP or polypropylene is a widely-used type of plastic that can be found in food containers, household appliances, automotive parts and more. The legs are made of steel (the most recycled material on earth, it is almost infinitely recyclable).

SSDr is the result of an ongoing process

In 2019, we launched a crowdfunding campaign to be able to finance the first production of the SSD chair (Simple, Strong and Durable) : our very first chair which was made of wood. As soon as the campaign ended, we knew that the next step was to work on a recycled plastic version of the chair.

A year and a half after the release of the SSD chair, we are very proud to introduce the SSDr chair! Simple, Strong and even more Durable. SSDr keeps the same characteristics, the same comfort and the same lines as the SSD chair but the new SSDr chair is made of a recycling material : recycled PP plastic, which combines flexibility and resistance.

The SSDr chair, a must-have

The SSDr chair is made of noble materials and has quality finishes. Thanks to its lines ,the SSDr chair is perfect in all room.

In Graphit Black version, it is sober and chic.

In Cloudy White version, it is sober and luminous.

In Rosemary Green and Terracotta Red, it bring a touch of colour to the room.
