The Steelcase Flex Perch Stool.  Made with Ultramid® B3EG6 CcycledTM

Ultramid® B3EG6 CcycledTM is an injection moldable polyamide (Nylon) 6 material that is made from a diverted waste stream generated during electronics production.  The waste stream would have been incinerated but instead was used to create a high value, durable product.
