Each component of the chair can be paired with different seats, backrests and bases that come in an array of colours, textures and materials such as recycled plastic, fabric and leather, as well as FSC-certified wood.
The chair, which is shipped disassembled in a bid to reduce its volume and carbon footprint, is put together without glue or staples so that each component can be easily replaced, disposed or recycled.
Mixu was featured on Dezeen Showroom this week, alongside products including carbon-negative chairs and a table that was inspired by the mirthful aesthetic of jelly bean sweets.
Read on to see the rest of this week's new products:
The chair is composed of an oak or black locust wood frame with a unified upholstered backrest and seat, which is made from post-consumer plastic waste that has been recycled and woven into yarn.
The chairs are made using European oak and American walnut, which makes them carbon negative since the process of manufacturing and distribution of the chairs emits less CO2 compared to how much the trees stored throughout their lifetime.
The sculptural table, which is available in three different colourways, comes with either a circular or oval tabletop that balances on a central pedestal to increase space for sitters.
The outdoor chairs are composed of thin galvanised steel rods that make it lightweight and stackable, while the table is composed of a slender central leg that supports the tabletop and comes in various finishes.
The bench is upholstered in a wide range of textiles and features a high backrest that doubles as a room divider to delineate private spaces for focused work.
The sofa system, which comprises four rounded modules, was intended for offices and can be easily arranged into various configurations to accommodate informal meetings or breakaway spaces.
The ottoman, which is available in a range of Kvadrat or Maharam fabrics and leather, serves as a spot for people to sit and take off their shoes, while the rack comes with a small adjustable shelf to hold phones or keys.
The seating, which includes sectional and three-seater sofas, chaise longues and armchairs, has a powder-coated aluminium frame enveloped with cords of woven acrylic rope.
The surface is made of acrylic that has been mixed with minerals and pigments and can be moulded into any shape to suit any interior.
The light features a drum-pendant design with a polycotton fabric shade that comes in white or putty colourways and a metal ceiling rose finished in either matt white or matt nickel.
The shelving, which is available either as a wall-mounted or freestanding system, is available in a number of finishes such as veneered wood and matt lacquers.
The sinuous pattern, which is designed through an algorithm, can be modified to fit walls of varying sizes and shapes. The panel, which is intended for offices, can be used as a pinboard for presentations in addition to providing sound insulation.
Veining that resembles raw marble is digitally printed onto the tiles, which are available in a palette of beige and earthy tones.
