What do you get when you mix wood with plastic? Have a seat.IKEA PS 2012 chair with armrests is made of wood plastic composite, a mix between polypropylene and wood fibres. By using this technique, we’ve been able to make it stronger, use materials wisely and lower the price. And we haven’t forgotten about comfort. Go ahead, try it out for yourself.
Designer Marcus Arvonen"Imagine two classic IKEA chairs, one in wood and one in plastic. What happens if you combine the two? The result is a new product in wood plastic composite, a material that brings out the best in both materials. The excellent design qualities of plastic come through and the wood composite means reduced carbon dioxide emissions when we manufacture IKEA PS 2012 chair with armrests."
