Originally designed in 1984 by Norwegian designer Peter Opsvik, the HÅG Capisco Puls is designed to hold the occupant in the upright and mobile posture of a horseback rider.
Flokk has released a limited-edition run of 200 of the chairs made from recycled plastic gathered from snowplough markers – the brightly coloured plastic poles used to signal to the driver where the edge of the machine's blade is positioned.
A collaboration with Nordic research institute SINTEF led to an experiment to turn the discarded plastic objects into chairs.
"We are living through a global trash crisis driven by mass consumption," said Flokk vice president of sustainability Atle Thiis-Messel.
"As one of Europe's leading furniture manufacturers, our team of environmental experts and designers must be inspired to use waste around them as a resource to create beautiful long-lasting products."
The limited-edition HÅG Capisco Puls comes in a deep auburn colour produced by the mixed recycled plastic.
Each chair comes with an edition number and a certificate of authenticity.
