Alki has launched the world’s first 100% bioplastic seat. Designed by Jean Louis Iratzoki, the seat of Alki’s new “Kuskoa Bi” bioplastic chair is 100% biodegradable and recyclable. Made from a biodegradable and recyclable mixture of sugar cane, cornstarch and beet, the new material provides an alternative to the environmentally harmful, fossil-fuel-based plastics usually used in injection-molded seats. Supported by a solid oak frame, the concave seat is injection molded.
Founded in 1981 in a village in the northern Basque Country, Alki (meaning chair in Basque) was set up as a small chair factory by a group of five friends.
