FissureFrancois B.Fissure de l'assise après 4 ans d'utilisation. Semble être un défaut de conception, puisque plusieurs consommateurs ont le même problème. Dommage car cette chaisse a une belle apparence.1
DéceptionHélène B.Le dossier a lâché et nous avons presque vécu un drame. Nous en avons acheté une autre, le chrome décolle sur le pied depuis l'achat et maintenant le siège a fendu. Décevant1

Tobias clear acrylic chairGarry D.The is is an attractive chair that looks great as seating around a kitchen table. For extended sitting i would advise getting a non-slip cushion to provide some comfort.4

Great chair!AngelaLove the look of the clear acrylic and chair is comfortable plus sturdy.5
Slick modern chairRobinGreat chair with modern lines. The transparent seat and chrome legs give an airy feel to what is actually a very substantial chair. It's supposed to be a dining room chair but we're using it as a desk chair. With the way the legs are built there is a bit of bounce which is actually quite comfortable.5
Very comfortable chair. We boughtMariaVery comfortable chair. We bought it to be used with our kitchen/dining table. Everyone loves it. The only thing that we found lacking was the way they were packed for shipping. We ordered the chairs online and had them delivered. They came in simple plastic type sleeves that if broken through they scratch the chairs which what happened to 2 of ours. We had to go to the store to exchange them whereby the process was done very easily and quickly. IKEA’s customer service was excellent.5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
