Bioplastic Chair Sourced from Sustainably Managed Forests
Beet, corn starch and sugar cane compose Alki's Kuskoa Bi Chair
Created by designer Jean Louis Iratzoki, the Kuskoa Bi Chair is the first biobased biodegradable chair in the market. It is made from a biodegradable material called bioplastic.
The chair was made for Alki, the French contemporary furniture company located in the northern Basque Country. The Alki workshop is located in the village of Itsasu and is surrounded by nature. The company uses oak from sustainably-managed forests and most of the company's furniture pieces are made from 100 percent natural materials. Iratzoki and the team at Alki decided to use the same approach in creating the Kuskoa Bi Chair.
