In 2016, Humanscale began a partnership with Bureo — an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution.
In 2013, Bureo founded Chile’s first fishing net collection and recycling program, Net Positiva. Nets are cleaned, mechanically shredded and pelletized to produce Bureo’s ‘NetPlus’ material. These pellets are used to manufacture quality products such as skateboards, sunglasses and now — for the first time ever — an ergonomic task chair.
The Diffrient Smart chair is ideal for Workstations, Conference Rooms, Reception Areas and Home Offices
The Diffrient Smart Ocean chair featuring the same timeless aesthetic, Form-Sensing Mesh Technology and seamless functionality as Diffrient Smart, Smart Ocean is the embodiment of our commitment to sustainable manufacturing. Humanscale has partnered with Bureo – an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastic pollution. Smart Ocean is built with recycled material that originates from Bureo’s Net+Positiva program, which facilitates waste disposal points for plastic fishing nets off the coast of Chile and provides incentives for the collection of discarded materials. Smart Ocean is the first-ever task chair to incorporate recycled ocean plastics in its material composition and is also Living Product Challenge-certified.
