Richard Hutten melts down airport's old chairs for "radical" new seating system



Dutch designer Richard Hutten worked with Lensvelt to create 27,000 new seats for Amsterdam's Schiphol airport that make use of the building's existing resources.
Called Blink, the Dezeen Award shortlisted design looks like standard airport seating, with rows of ergonomically curved seats fixed to a horizontal supporting beam.
But according to Hutten, this "radical new way to produce a product" emits 95 per cent less carbon in its production than any comparable product. The designer followed circular design principles, with all of the seats' constituent materials being either recycled, recyclable or biodegradable.
The frame of the seating system consists of recycled aluminium from the airport's previous chairs
"It takes 15 kilowatt-hours of electricity to produce one kilogram of aluminium," Hutten told Dezeen. "For reference, an average household uses 7.5 kilowatt-hours per day. That is really a lot of energy. You only need around 10 per cent of this amount of energy to recycle aluminium, since you don't have to make the material, you just have to melt it."

"Using recyclable materials is not enough," he continued. "Products should also be judged based on the energy that is needed in their whole lifecycle, from mining the materials all the way to the end of their life."
The Blink system also cuts out all plastic ? which Hutten previously described as "the cancer of our planet" because it emits carbon through its pr...
