Orange Butter Chair
Designed by Australian designers Nicholas Karlovasitis and Sarah Gibson for DesignbyThem.
The Butter Chair is created from 100% recycled content that can be recycled again at the end of the products life. The material is derived from 70% post-consumer waste, mainly derived from recycled milk containers and factory waste. The products ability to be sent as a flat piece reduces the environmental impact of the product during distribution and the robustness of the stool and textured surface ensures product longevity. DesignByThem also offers a product stewardship program where it takes back products to be either repaired, reused or recycled.
The designers Nicholas Karlovasitis and Sarah Gibson met whilst studying at university and formed DesignByThem in late 2006. Since establishing DesignByThem they have gone on to work with a diverse range of clients and have produced numerous designs characterised by their innovative use of materials, sustainable practices and ability to combine a sense of fun with clear function.
