Ocean chair by Jørgen and Nanna Ditzel for Mater

Mater has reinterpreted the Ocean chair originally created in 1955 by renowned designers, Jørgen and Nanna Ditzel. Collaborating with Dennie Ditzel, their daughter, Mater has created a new, sustainable iteration made of recycled fishing nets and hard plastic.

Mater is committed to creating ethical, high-quality designs. Each Ocean chair uses approximately 960g of marine plastic waste removed from the ocean. The collection is designed for disassembly, each component fully recyclable when reaching end of life, creating a cycle of sustainability.

The elegant, lightweight chair features gently curved slats creating the back and seat, supported by a robust steel frame. The original consisted of a steel frame and wood veneer slats, the new design has increased slightly in size to accommodate modern proportions. 

Available in the colours black or sand. Steel frame in gunmetal finish.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor use. 

The Ocean chair was awarded the Wallpaper* magazine design award in early 2019. 

60w x 56d x 81/46cmh
