Treading Lightly

Lightly conserves precious materials by only using what is necessary, creating a strong and stable structure with minimal material.

The Lightly chair is made from plants and waste. The castor bean plant soaks up carbon as it grows before being transformed into the base polymer used in Lightly’s frame. This incredible material makes up 74% of Lightly’s weight and Post-consumer recycled waste is used in Lightly’s resilient and UV stable seat.

Lightly's New Zealand based production uses 82% renewable energy and follows strong environmental and safety standards.
