Recycling is in Vogue

Reclaimed wood chips and recycled plastic were both used to create this IKEA chair, designed by Swedish studio Form Us With Love.Called Odger, the chair is the result of a three-year-long project exploring how a sustainable composite material could be used to create an affordable seat. It is made through a process of injection moulding, using a mixture that is 70 per cent polypropylene and 30 per cent wood chips. The wood chips all come from reclaimed wood, while recycled plastic is favoured over so-called "virgin" plastic.
