Designed with teenagers in mind—a group of people in a high state of flux that’s characterized by porosity—the pOrOus Chair by MisoSoupDesign is a versatile, sustainably designed piece of furniture made from recycled post-industrial content such as soft drink bottles. Designed by Japanese architects Daisuke Nagatomo and Minnie Jan, pOrOus Chair “encourages us to insert our interests and needs.”

Constructed of re-fabricated polyester, pOrOus Chair is durable and flexible. Due to its porous nature, the chair takes less material to produce. By using Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Milling, pOrOus Chair can be drilled precisely. A negative model is used to pour in the recycled resin, and then the chair’s two pieces are welded together: “This single-mold method makes the fabrication process easy, and it is highly ecological and economical.”
