The new shape of sitting

The WOOOM seat shell is made of formed non-woven material. This material is ideal for a wide range of uses thanks to its outstanding technical properties.

 

It’s mouldable, lightweight and robust, absorbs sound and retains its shape well. But most importantly it is 100 % recyclable. With the large WOOOM chair (woo74 and woo75) up to 37 % of the polyester fibre used can consist of recycled fibres. In the case of the small WOOOM chair (woo56, woo57 and woo58), this figure can be as high as 60 %. This recycled material is made from shredded PET bottles.
