The Barcelona Collection Pouf is a minimalistic seat made from Italian regenerated cotton, organic coconut fibres with natural latex, FSC certified wood and recycled paper waste. It is light and still very sturdy, despite being made with paper. We have tested it up to 250 kg which it held perfectly fine. The Pouf has an inviting comfort and it makes a great all-around seat in your home. Its generous inner space is perfect for stashing your favourite items.
The product is designed by Hans Thyge & Co.
How it was made
To make the basket we compress a paper pulp made with recycled paper and water. We chose FSC certified plywood for the inner ring and upholstery plate. The coconut fibres get firm using a natural latex, non-toxic glue and paper yarn is also used in the manufacturing process. All our paper products are handmade and have individual character. Please know that as we are using recycled paper, there is a small possibility that the paper paste contains other materials.
Even though its egg-like bottom form makes a very resistant seat, we do not recommend overloading the pouf with more than 120kg.
Dimensions and Weight
Measurements: Height 32 cm x Ø Diameter 53.5 cm at the top and Ø 40 cm on the bottom.
Our products are not made for the outdoors. The paper paste cannot withstand substantial amounts of water or other liquids. However, due to the density achieved in our production process, it is a resistant and durable material.
We do not recommend keeping the paper paste basket in humid environments for long periods. In case of incidents, remove liquids with a dry cloth by letting the fabric absorb the liquids and gently dry the product. Try not to rub the wet paper paste as it could damage the surface.
Dirt and dust can be removed with a dry cloth or a vacuum cleaner. Paper paste is a natural material like leather or wood and likewise might develop a patina or evolve.
A combination of sustainable materials
The upholstery is made using Italian regenerated cotton and to make a soft cushion we put coconut fibers with natural latex inside. Its wooden plate and inner ringer is made with FSC certified radiata pine. The basket is moulded in 100% recycled paper and water.
