Bean is a 100% recycled caf  chair that gives a second life to spent coffee grounds and post-consumer recycled plastics. Whatever environment Bean isplaced in, it sends a story of sustainability to its users. By incorporating spent grounds, the chair maintains a slight coffee aroma, pairing perfectly withany coffee shop or caf . Bean will give coffee drinkers a sense of ease, knowing that the waste of their drinking habits is no longer producing methane ina landfill, but rather, providing them a comfortable place to sit while doing work or catching up with a friend.
