Concept

"The Beth armchair is made exclusively of recycled materials. Its skin is in recycled rubber. The continuous surface is printed with colourful trompe-l'œil maxi stitches and has raw-edged seams. A fibre, derived from recycled PET bottles, is used to fill the armchair and creates its snug, enveloping softness." Philippe Bestenheider

Beth is an armchair designed for both public and private outdoor spaces. It is made using 100% Italian-made reconditioned, ecosustainable rubber from used tyres, and polyester flock from recycled bottles.

The reconditioned rubber is water repellent, tough, free of toxic emissions, and comes in a range of decorative designs (macro prints of 70's fabrics printed directly onto the rubber). Furthermore, the construction method was chosen to facilitate the recovery of all its components, by keeping the padding separate from the external upholstery.
