The second life of REX
2021 for circuform

Rex, the first dutch deposit chair - was launched in the Netherlands in autumn 2021.

A special photo series was made with Annegien van Doorn to make REX' second life transparent for a wide audience. As a model in overalls, Ineke Hans shows the different stages in the recycling process, provided with short texts​.

1. an award winning good design gets a second life
2. fishing nets, office chair components and industrial waste is used a second time
3. production of chairs with lowest ecological impact in re-engineered moulds
4. you can always return the chair locally for a guaranteed deposit of € 20,00
5. deposit chairs are checked, cleaned, optionally fixed and sold again with deposit
6. broken deposit chairs are shredded as valuable resource for second production
