The Butter Stool and Butter Bar Stool are part of the range of recycled furniture by DesignByThem – consisting of 80% recycled content. The designers believe that there is a large difference between designing products that can be recycled and products that are made from recycled materials. Many products can be recycled however the majority use virgin plastic, essentially adding more plastic to a saturated recycling system.

Aside from the sustainable attributes of the Butter Bar Stool and Butter Stool, they remain extremely robust, being UV stable and water resistant – maintaining the designers’ beliefs that sustainable products should not be compromised. Perfect for the environmentally conscious specifier.

The stools can be sent flat packed and are cleverly designed from a single piece of material which folds together to become rigid. They are available in 8 colours, with the option to customise.

The most outstanding feature of this delicate, light 1.3 STOOL is the wafer-thin impression made by the fine contours of seat. It looks if it is floating on air. Space-saving shape and stable construction give this ensemble big city flair – in small restaurants, snack bars, bars and bistros. Made with solid ash, oak or American walnut.
