The seat consists of plywood, upholstered with CFC-free polyurethane foam with a vegetable-tanned leather, the base is made of black, through-dyed, non-slip foam rubber and the tensioning system is made of steel and rubber.
The Lignin used to print the stool is 100% biodegradeable and is plant based polymer
