EcoChair - the most popular product so far. The planning started as a result of our long-term dissatisfaction with the furniture generally designed for garden use. Exotic wood together with a large amount of metallic parts left a lot of room for product development.
First we took up the challenge of the metallic parts. In outdoor conditions wooden furniture tend to get repeatedly wet and dry and so the wood stretches and contracts. Metallic parts donot follow suit. This leads to creaking and squeaking and finally to cracking of the wood.
Next we considered different timber species. We live in the middle of noteworthy forest resources, yet the shops offer furniture made of wood grown on the other side of the world. Why, oh why? The answer is often that wood from rain forests is by far the most durable in outdoor use. That may well be so, but we have in our very own forests timber species just as good, larch and oak, for example. We would rather use resources closer to home to decrease the need of transportation, increase employment locally, and first of all – we believe the tree species in our forests well endure the demanding conditions of our latitude.
As a result we designed the EcoChair out of wood and hemp rope. The structure enables two different sitting positions. The wooden pieces tied together with hemp rope accommodate themselves to each person’s shape and size, thus guaranteeing comfortable experience. Using metallic parts, this level of individual comfort can not be reached.
EcoChair is made of four kinds of wood: birch, oak, larch and alder. All EcoChairs are finished with oil, except for the one made of larch. Larch wood is weatherproof as it is. In time, the wood greys stylishly if it is left untreated.
EcoChair is strong and easy-care. We have satisfied customers, who weigh almost 200kg. To take care of your chair, just tighten the rope when needed (simply untie the knot and tie a new, tighter knot). The need to touch up the finish with a fresh coat of oil depends very much on whether the chair is indoors or outdoors. Do touch up when needed.
EcoChair can be used almost anywhere. At home or leisure home it is great for patio, balcony, dock or living room. Try it in the sauna, you’ll love it! EcoChair is ideal to take with you – boat or caravan will take you to picnics and festivals.
