Mater’s Conscious 3162 chair effortlessly blends 1950s aesthetics with modern recycled materials. The chair’s frame is crafted from certified solid wood, while its slightly curved seat and backrest are made from recycled composite material. Originally developed for school use and introduced in 1958, the Conscious chair was designed by two renowned Danish architect-designers: Børge Mogensen and Esben Klint. With its supremely clean lines and sturdy construction, this chair is truly a versatile piece, equally at home in a classroom, dining area, café, or meeting room.
The seat of the Conscious 3162 chair is made of Matek, a unique composite patented by Mater. Its tactile, textured surface showcases a captivating blend of recycled materials – the materials for this chair include coffee shell waste sourced from a Danish coffee roastery and recycled industrial plastic waste. All materials used in the Mater Circular Material collection are fully recyclable, and when the time comes, discontinued products can be returned to Mater for a new lease of life.
