Kuskoa Bi: A Fully Biodegradable Chair

Kuskoa Bi chair is a 100% bioplastic chair made by Jean Louis Iratzoki for Alki. With the goal to create a comfortable, enveloping chair without using traditional, environmentally polluting materials, they created a new material.


Made of polymers similar to plastic, bioplastic is made from 100% plant-based renewable resources (think corn starch, sugarcane, beets, etc.). Fully recyclable, it doesn’t leave a heavy footprint on the earth and is even biodegradable.


With the large, enveloping shell, the Kuskoa Bi chair embraces the user. It optimizes back and arm support and sits on a solid wood trestle. Users can also get it upholstered for a softer touch.
