The Nuez Lounge BIO is made of a thermopolymer generated by living organisms and without fossil fuels. The material is not only recyclable but biodegradable and compostable.
The thermopolymer is used to make the Nuez Lounge BIO's high-backed, enveloping shell, which has a warm, modern character and a shape similar to folded paper.
Lounge BIO echoes the forms in Urquiola's wider family of Nuez products for Andreu World. It includes a chair, armchair, table and stool.
Sustainability concerns also informed other aspects of the chair's design. A new recyclable fabric collection, called New Circular One Pure Eco, was developed especially for the chair, made from recycled plastic bottles and packaging.
The chair can also be easily separated into its component materials — shell, foam, fabric, and wood or aluminium base — for recycling and repair.
Nuez Lounge BIO is available in four colours, either sand, basalt grey, terracotta brown or black.
