This adaptable and good-looking office chair is made from recycled fishing nets salvaged from the ocean

Since the transition from home offices to actual corporate offices has begun, it’s important to ensure that employees feel comfortable, safe, and motivated in their workplace. And adding the right furniture designs can greatly contribute to creating an office that is conducive to motivation and productivity. And if the design manages to be sustainable and ergonomic, well, you’ve hit all the checkboxes. And, a great example of an excellent officer chair is the Sphere office chair.

Designer: Okamura

Designed by Japanese furniture brand Okamura, the Sphere office chair is a sleek and good-looking office chair made using recycled fishing nets that have been salvaged from the ocean. The Sphere office chair was launched during the Chicago design fair NeoCon 2023 in June, and it features a “3D physical fit shell” with a kinematic structure that effortlessly adapts to the contours of the user’s body. This allows the users to sit for long periods of time on the chair without feeling any discomfort or fatigue.

The upholstery of the chair has been made from Okamura’s Re:net material, which is created from recycled fishing nets taken from the Japanese ocean. According to Okamura, the chair has a high level of recyclability. The chair’s seat depth, reclining tension, and armrests can be easily and efficiently adjusted to maximize comfort. The chair has also been equipped with an ankle-tilt reclining function that works to ensure that the user’s posture is maintained in a natural position, whether upright or reclined.

“The Sphere chair is a modern and innovative seating solution that caters to the needs of today’s workplace. Regardless of their body size or shape, Sphere is dedicated to providing unrivaled comfort and support to its user.” said the furniture brand Okamura. The Sphere office chair is available with a fixed armrest with an angled surface to facilitate the usage of a smartphone or tablet. The Sphere office chair is a comfortable, adaptable, and recyclable chair that is perfectly suited for modern office spaces. You can adjust and adapt the chair according to your personal preferences, and also send it away to be recycled once its life cycle ends.
