The KWART is a comfortable design chair designed by Ton Haas. With its airy seat and strong construction, little material is needed to produce this chair and it is light in weight. The KWART can take a beating and is ideal for busy and frequently used areas such as canteens and informal spaces, but also for the home or patio.
In June 2021, an independent agency gave KWART an LCA of 0.25. This makes KWART by far the chair with the lowest eco-footprint currently available on the market. This is partly because the chair is produced in the Netherlands from fully recycled plastic. Moreover, Circuform uses a deposit for this chair, which is paid back when the chair is returned. Regardless of the condition of the chair. We reuse the plastic in our production process, and so the circle of the KWART is complete.
