Press release PET armchair (March 2019)

Zaandam, March 2019


From plastic bottle to design armchair

De Machinekamer introduces the PET armchair. A bucket seat made of recycled plastic bottles. The plastic bottles are processed into a soft felt tub with a classic shape. The tub is supported by a metal frame, and the soft coating makes this PET armchair a comfortable eye-catcher. A contemporary armchair, suitable for both private and commercial use.


Classic tub in a modern jacket

With its spacious classic tub, the PET armchair certainly stands out in any interior. Olger Blase, co-owner of De Machinekamer; ‘while designing the armchair, we got inspired by the mid-century modern design trend. This is noticeable in the round shapes of the tub and the fact that the tub is made out of one piece’. During the design process of the armchair, great attention was paid to seating comfort. It is a comfortable, spacious armchair, in which you are active and relaxed. The metal base with a four-legged base gives a contemporary and elegant twist to the chair.


The proces from plastic bottle to armchair

Going from a mountain of plastic bottles to an armchair of felt, how does that work? Firstly, the plastic bottles are shredded and ground. These fibres are then pressed into thin layers of flexible felt. After this, the felt is heated and pressed into a mould. After adding the frame and the upholstery, you have an armchair that fits well in the circular economy and is beautiful to see.



The PET armchair is available in various colours. The tub is available in light grey and dark grey. The metal base is made of steel and is powder-coated in the colours black, pearl gold or beige-red. the armchair is covered with two separate seating panels or with a spacious seat cushion. There is a wide range of materials and colours. This way, endless variations can be made


Applicable and washable

In a living room, office or hospitality facility, the PET armchair can find its place anywhere. Besides that, the PET armchair is suitable for intensive use. Strong but light materials were used for the armchair, which makes the armchair easy to move. Ideal if you want to change your interior often. Moreover, The PET armchair is very suitable for family households and catering establishments, because the felt tub is easy to maintain. Stains, for example, are easy to clean.

De Machinekamer recently started selling the Abstracta cupboard system designed by Paul Cadovius in the Netherlands. “We are proud that we, as specialists in the field of timeless design and vintage design classics, can exclusively offer this beautiful. system in the Netherlands. The Scandinavian design fits perfectly with our collection and the possibilities are great duet o the modular structure.” says Olger Base, lover of design classics and co-owner of De Machinekamer.

De Machinekamer supplies the original framework with contemporary shelves. “The Abstracta System allows you to assemble your own shelf. Not thirteen in a dozen, but a cupboard that matches your space, wishes and taste. If you start to get bored with it over time, then you can use the parts to make another cupboard or say a coffee table”, says Olger.


Abstracta System

Abstracta is a modular system which is an excellent fit in every interior due to its contemporary design. The system was invented by Danish architect Poul Cadovius in the ’60. The modular system was the first of its kind to make complex forms possible quickly and easily. Using separate components, numerous shapes and furniture can be made.

The system consists of two basic components; pipes and connectors. The advantage of this system is its simplicity and flexibility; large or small variant scan be assembled quickly. The system has a pure and elegant appearance.


Poul Cadovius

Poul Cadovius (1911 -2011) as one of the most colourful and successful people in the history of the Danish furniture industry. He was the designer of the well-known Royal System cabinets, the world’s first wall-mounted cabinet system. The floating, modular system Royal System has been designed in such a way that the storage space was not at the expense of the floor surface. This was revolutionary in the field of traditional cupboard systems. The Royal System won the gold medal at the Finnish furniture fair in 1950 and the silver medal at the XO Triennale di Milano in 1957. Today, the Royal System is still characteristic for modern design from the 1950s and 60s.

After the success Cadovius had with Royal Systems, he came up with the award-winning and world-famousAbstracta System. Abstracta System gained immediate worldwide recognition after the 1962 Cologne Furniture Fair, where four dome-shaped halls with the system were built.
