Smart Ocean

A Sustainable Approach to a Legendary Chair

An inventive adaptation of the legendary Diffrient Smart chair and the first ergonomic task chair made with recycled fishing nets.

We've sourced materials in partnership with Bureo, an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution.

A Net Positive Product

Smart Ocean is the embodiment of our commitment to sustainable manufacturing. Each chair incorporates almost 1kg of recycled fishing net material and is Living Product certified — meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.

Sustainable Design

The material used to produce Smart Ocean is sourced from Net Positiva, a collection and recycling program aimed at combating the detrimental effects of discarded ocean fishing nets. These nets are transformed into recycled nylon pellets used for manufacturing.

Custom Fit Technology

Featuring the same timeless design and functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean (available in black frame) offers Form-Sensing Mesh Technology to instantly adjust to and move with every unique user. There is no need for training, instructions or manual adjustments.

IT'S UP TO ALL OF US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

  • The ever-growing deluge of plastic pollution in our oceans has a tremendous impact on human health and on the health of our natural environment.
  • 8 million tons of plastic waste enter the ocean each year.
  • 640,000 tons of fishing nets enter the ocean each year.
  • The amount of plastic pollution in the ocean will surpass the amount of fish by 2050 if nothing changes.
  • Fishing nets are identified as the most harmful form of ocean plastic pollution.
  • Recycling and repurposing plastic keeps it out of the ocean and helps to mitigate many environmental issues.
