The materials used in the Semisitting have been specially selected for their low environmental impact, eliminating the use of hazardous chemicals in any of its components.
Currently, the Semisitting is made with 28% recycled materials. In our efforts to continue to increase this%, we continue to explore new materials and processes that enable us to improve this ratio.
The aluminum used is 100% recycled. The use of recycled aluminum is a reduction of 95% of the energy needed for production compared to virgin aluminum.
The coating of metal parts is done with powder containing no VOC nor solvents.
Most pieces are mono-materials and systems union between pieces of different materials are made with detachable joints which ensure easy accessibility. Assembly time for this chair in the factory is less than 7 minutes.
Semisitting production centre is certified according to ISO 9001 for almost 10 years and was recently awarded the ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system.
Year after year we work to reduce packaging without compromising product safety:
– The cardboard used in packaging contains 20% recycled material.
– The boxes are printed with 1 color, printed surface has been decreased and water-based inks are used.
Its light weight and volume favor to create compact packaging, which increases the number of boxes per pallet by 50% compared to other models that helps get more energy efficient logistics and lower fuel consumption.
It is a product result of a thorough ergonomic study with very intuitive control systems. Each unit comes with a detailed instruction manual that helps the user to make proper use of the product.
Its extensive catalog offers plenty of options for each user to customize the product and conform to users’ needs.
This product requires no special maintenance, and needn’t be cleaned with special products.

To be recyclable, fabric must be composed of a single material. Most fabrics in catalog meet this requirement; in particular textiles used are 100% polyolefin.
The Semisitting is over 95% recyclable, which means that with proper waste management the amount of waste sent to landfill could be minimized.
From Semisitting we encourage the reuse of obsolete chairs by donating them to non-profit organizations and NGO.
