Chair “Roco-co”

A significant portion of operating expenses are on wood cut-offs in various shapes and sizes and other scraps lying around the factory.  From these Roco-co was born.  The unused materials are sorted out, cut to the desired shape, and assembled according to the pattern of the design using eco-friendly white glue as adhesive.  The item goes through a manual sanding process and a coat of sealer provides a finishing touch.

Description

The sustainable waste chair Roco-co is a showcase of how sustainable benefits are derived from waste and scrap materials consuming a considerable space in the factory.  It is designed by Wataru Sakuma, a Japanese designer working for the company since 2004 creating lamps, wall arts and tapestry using handmade paper.

Apart from using indigenous and scrap materials and venturing into a cleaner production, it also provides livelihood opportunity to a group of housewives living within the district where the factory is located.
