Felt Relax

Like all other products in the Felt family, Felt Relax is made of pressed Felt from recycled post-consumer PET bottles

The name says it all. This chair is made for relaxing. The shell of the Felt Relax is available in two versions: with and without headrest, and there is a choice of
three different frames.

It’s not only the seating comfort that stands out. Our Felt Relax recently won a Red Dot Design Award. This prize has been awarded since 1995 to products with an extraordinary design. The statement by the Jury: With its environmentally friendly material sourcing and use, the design of this versatile swivel chair also takes its fair share of ecological responsibility.

The cushions in the back and seat have a different firmness
and composition, which results in optimal seating comfort. The indentations and folds of the felt shell guarantee that optimum strength is created with very little material.

The video illustrates the development of this beautiful chair.

4-star base

The 4-star base adds a whole new dimension to sitting. The beauty of this version is that the chair can be rotated and automatically returns to its basic position when you stand up. What a neat feature. As standard, the star base is coated in one of the many available colours. Would you like a more elegant look? It is also available in polished aluminium.

Wooden frame

The Felt Relax with a wooden frame provides a homely feel and can be stained and lacquered in a wide variety of colours. The felt shell is supported at four points and seems to float in space.

Tubular frame

The tubular frame of the Felt Relax has a minimalist and slender appearance. We use the same tube thickness as the Felt Fine and this frame is also available in various colours.

Shell versions

The shell of the Felt Relax is available in a low and a high version for optimal relaxation. Both chairs are designed in such a way that we can fill the seats with sound-absorbing and comfortable cushions. In addition, the chairs are modular. This makes it easy to replace the frame, shell or seat cushion.

For the shell of the lower version we use 260 recycled PET bottles, the shell of the higher version is made of at least 311 recycled PET bottles.

Felt Relax is locally designed, developed and produced.

Local production: Vepa distinguishes itself by producing everything in its own local facilities. Our own wood, sheet steel, tubular steel, powder coating, wood spray, upholstery and final assembly departments form a complete production circle within a single company. By producing close to the sales market we keep distances small and CO2 emissions minimal.

LCA: By using independent LCAs (life cycle analysis) we reveal the environmental impact of a product. In product development we can greatly improve later designs by carrying out an LCA in the initial phase. In addition, an LCA also provides insight into the main factors responsible for the environmental damage. We then use these factors as starting points for redesign or as focal points for improvement. The LCAs are carried out in accordance with ISO 14044.

FSC® and PEFC: Vepa only uses certified wood. The FSC® and PEFC labels stand for responsible and sustainable forest management. Responsible forest management meets three criteria: it takes account of the environment, respects social aspects (such as the rights of local communities and forest workers) and is economically viable. Moreover, wood is the number one bio-based resource by nature.

TPAC (Timber Procurement Assessment Committee): Timber to be supplied or timber processed in products to be supplied must comply with the Dutch Procurement Criteria for Timber according to the Socially Responsible Procurement criteria. FSC® and PEFC™ are both systems that have been approved by the Dutch state secretary.

SRP criteria: Vepa complies with the SRP criteria drawn up by the central government. The national criteria for socially responsible procurement (SRP) for office furniture are available via the SRP criteria tool (https://www.mvicriteria.nl/en/webtool).
