Now available with seat shell made of post-consumer recycled material


A luxurious, relaxed and extremely comfortable chair.
Design: Mathias Seiler
Marel is a versatile chair with a highly comfortable, flexible seat and lavishly padded, luxurious upholstery. The striking ridges and slight folds are characteristic. The seat shell within is made of post-consumer recycled material. The slender and light frames place the seat in the spotlight. The four-prong swivel base in black-coated or polished aluminium provides extra movement at the table.

Soft and fluffy

The relaxed look of the upholstery delivers what it promises – a soft, fluffy seat that provides exceptional comfort. The armrests are available either with caps made from solid wood or with a Fenix solid core, or as solid side panels.

A sustainable part of the cycle

Marel has a plastic seat shell that is 100% recycled from polypropylene waste (available from September 2023). The production process starts with packaging waste that is collected in Europe and separated by recycling specialist PreZero in state-of-the-art, fully automated sorting plants and then processed into recycled plastic. An additional 15% fibreglass is incorporated into the recycled material to give the seat shell the required stiffness.

Steel frames are made of semi-finished products that have a high recycling content and are used as steel scrap for new alloys at the end of their product lifetime. The cast aluminium base also has a high average recycling rate of 90% and remains within the materials cycle.

We are also helping to clean up the oceans with the Poseidon fabric cover, which is made of 100% recycled PET. The yarn for the fabric is made using plastic waste from the sea, which is collected and recycled by approved partners of the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE.
