R.U.M. Design Chair
by Wehlers

R.U.M. Re-Cycled Ocean Plastic
Wehlers/CF Moller

Designed by Welhers, R.U.M is a chair made from recycled post-use ocean plastic.

The design philosophy of the chair is it will be repaired, reused and recycled during and after the end of its lifecycle. This is to prevent re-entering into the ocean and excess use of materials.

This project has been longlisted in the seating design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.

Designer: Wehlers
Project: R.U.M. Design chair
