Company: Banne

Product: Bloom

Standout: This new brand with a mission to make sustainable design work at scale teamed with Peter van de Water for the flower-inspired chair, made mostly from recycled low-density polyethylene, a plastic that can be infinitely melted down and reused and, with an integrated rainwater drain, is suitable for indoors or out.
