Felt Tub - Vepa

Felt Tub

A little quality time for yourself, away from the outside world in your own cocoon.

Curled up in a warm corner of the Felt Tub, you nestle into the comfortable cushion to enjoy reading, phoning or working. The Felt Tub is made of 100% post-consumer PET felt and is available in two versions. For one Felt Tub we use approximately 630 recyceld PET bottles

Part of a family

The Felt Tub is part of the sustainable Felt family, which also includes Felt, Felt Fine, Felt High and Felt Relax.

This stylish armchair is a wonderful addition to our chair collection made from 100% recycled PET bottles.

The video illustrates the creation of this beautiful chair.

Solid, circular and graceful

To eliminate the need for adhesives, the two symmetrical PET-felt halves of the armchair are joined together with screws. This gives the whole a sturdy appearance and is also very circular, because the parts can be separated at any time. The 38 mm thick tubular frame of the chair ensures the right sitting position and offers a solid and graceful support that suits the seat. The bold wood/steel combination of the frame brings a Scandinavian look to the whole. For a more homely atmosphere, you can also choose a tubular frame with wooden legs.

Private cocoon

The PET felt used has an acoustic effect that dampens the surrounding noise to a soft murmur. While reading or working, you forget all about time and the place you are in. You don’t even have to leave the chair to recharge your phone, laptop or tablet. A power outlet can be attached to the inside of the seat. To prevent the inside from becoming too dark, the Felt Tub is only available in light grey PET felt. Felt Tub can optionally be equipped with LED light, for easy reading.

Felt Tub 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).
