The furniture range features precise engineering and is made of reclaimed and recycled materials discovered through ongoing exploration of eco-conscious resources.

SU seats come in three different materials. The solid reclaimed oak seats have been sourced from old barns in the USA, and have been carved by Amish craftsmen in Pennsylvania.

The concrete seats are made of green-concrete, an eco-concept that can replace the energy-consuming traditional material used in architecture; the seat consists of 50% recycled glass bottles and csa (calcium sulfoaluminate cement).

Recycled polyethylene seats, made of 75% post-industrial and 25% post-consumer content, and shaped into the SU seat through rotation moulding, come in three colour options – red, flint gray and dark charcoal gray.
