Swedish studio Form Us With Love design IKEA chair

Founded by designers Jonas Pettersson and John Löfgren, Swedish design studio Form Us With Love used reclaimed wood chips and recycled plastic to create a new IKEA chair called Odger. The chair is the result of a three-year-long project exploring how a sustainable composite material could be used to create an affordable seat.

It is made through a process of injection moulding, using a mixture that is 70 percent polypropylene and 30 percent wood chips. The wood chips all come from reclaimed wood, while recycled plastic is favoured over so-called “virgin” plastic.

“The brief for the chair was very much concentrated on the reclaimed wood-plastic and its properties, but the economy of the transport – having to tackle the separation and assembly of shell and legs – became an equally important departure for us,” – John Löfgren, creative director at Form Us With Love.
