Va va Vooom! The Vooom series by designer Jörg Bernauer provides comfortable, private & versatile spaces made to focus and unwind. This double Red Dot award-winning series offers two back heights—a midback and high back, both with distinct wing arms.
Embodying great design, function and comfort, Vooom also delivers a sustainable seating solution. Its outer shell is made of nonwoven, light weight material with sound suppression technology. This form fleece is comprised of up to 60% recycled, shredded, PET bottles. These flakes are melted at 280°C, injected into contoured molds and cold cured into beautiful forms that are 100% recyclable.
Plastic bottles take up to 1000 years to dissolve. During this process, they leak pollutants into our soil & water. Further, over 80% of plastic bottles never get recycled. These bottles end up sitting in landfills, increasing by 38 million plastic bottles per year. Plus, the recycling industry is overwhelmed and unable to keep up with our demand to recycle plastic. Yikes! Enter Via Seating’s Vooom chair. In our continual commitment to produce authentic sustainable, lasting & durable seating solutions, Via Seating debuts the Vooom series. Tackling plastic waste issues head on, every Vooom chair contains up to 60% of salvaged, shredded PET bottles. Instead of polluting our planet in a landfill, these salvaged bottles are strategically crafted into the form fleece shells of our safe, durable & lasting Vooom seating.
The form fleece shell of each Vooom chair follows this creation process:
• The nonwoven mat containing up to 60% of salvaged PET bottles are cut roughly to size and heated to 200°C
• This is placed into a mold and inserted into a high-pressure press where it is compressed and cold-cured to the consistent, final shapes
• This is perfected in a CNC-controlled cutting system and contoured into the final form fleece shell
• Minimal electrostatic charges
• Skin-friendly – Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX®
• Excellent light fastness to ISO standards
• High abrasion resistance
