Material quality and production process characteristics have a central role in the No Smoking collection of chairs. The design is based on a system for the recycling of specially treated used paper (the mixture obtained by pulping the paper is applied to the moulds and dried naturally) which acquires considerable strength and can be used to create the chair’s structural shell. The hand crafted treatment process of the material and the variable factors related to its manufacturing make sure that every piece that is produced is different, with unique surface nuances and colour variations. In this way No Smoking is an original interpretation of the theme of sustainable production, conveying a message of ethics as well as aesthetics.
