Developed by Jean Louis Iratzoki for Alki, Kuskoa Bi is the first chair to be manufactured in bioplastic, a plant-based, biodegradable and recyclable polymer.
Its particularly enveloping shell, cut out in such a way as to optimize back and arm support, is delicately placed on a solid wood trestle.
Bioplastic is a polymer with similar characteristics and properties to plastics made from non-renewable fossil fuels. It can be injected, extruded and thermoformed but it is made from 100% plant-based renewable resources (beet, corn starch, sugarcane, etc.).
This biobased polymer is fully recyclable and its organic properties mean that, when subjected to an industrial process, it is biodegradable. Moreover, another significant environmental aspect lies in its reduced carbon footprint as bioplastic production results in reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
