Smart Ocean untilizes material from discarded ocean fishing nets collected and recycled by Bureo, an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution. The nets are transformed into plastic pellets and then used to manufacture Smart Ocean chairs. Smart Ocean is the first-ever ergonomic chair to be built with recycled net and is also certified by the International Living Future Institute to the full Living Product Challenge — meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date.

“A smart chair adapts to your weight and shape automatically, as if the chair were made for you personally.” – Niels Diffrient, Industrial Designer, Ergonomics Pioneer Drawing inspiration from the three dimensional-approach tailors take when creating suits, Niels Diffrient wanted to build a minimal mesh chair with a back that automatically fits the user. As a result, when you sit in our mesh task chairs, they fit you like a perfectly tailored shirt.

In 2016, Humanscale began a partnership with Bureo — an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution.
