The HÅG Capisco Puls – A Circular Design Star
HÅG Capisco Puls
In an ongoing quest to expand our circular design product portfolio, Flokk brand HÅG have created a limited number of their iconic HÅG Capisco Puls chair made from a uniquely Nordic material: ‘snow plough markers’.
During its ongoing work with Nordic research institute SINTEF into potentially suitable, post-consumer, recycled material sources local to the manufacturer, the Flokk Research & Development team obtained a batch of discarded snow plough markers. Realising their inherent strength, HÅG saw an opportunity to use the material for the Peter Opsvik designed chair, HÅG Capisco Puls, and tested out the processed poles, creating this Limited Edition of two hundred chairs in a beautifully unique Auburn colour, a result of the mixed recycled plastics.
Flokk’s Vice President of Sustainability, Atle Thiis-Messel:“We are living through a global trash crisis driven by mass consumption. As one of Europe’s leading furniture manufacturers, our team of environmental experts and designers must be inspired to use waste around them as a resource to create beautiful long-lasting products. This will in turn assist us in reaching our ambitious yearly targets to increase the use of recycled materials therefore reducing our environmental impact.
Though not yet ready for large scale production this concept acts as a mission statement of Flokk’s commitment to Circular Design.”
