Think is the stool with a brain and a conscience. It's intelligent enough to understand how you sit and adjust itself intuitively. It's thoughtful enough to measure and minimize its lifelong impact on the environment. In fact, the Think stool is the first product to ever receive Cradle to Cradle Product Certification from McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry's (MBDC). Designed by Glen Oliver Low.
Created for the earth as well as for the user, the Think stool was conceived, developed and produced for maximum sustainability. Recyclable, recycled and responsible, Think is the stool with a brain and a conscience.
Every stage of the Think stool's life has been considered. No other stool has so carefully considered its impact on the earth, from birth to rebirth. Denmark's Institute for Product Development conducted a complete Life Cycle Assessment, evaluating all Think material extraction, production processes, transportation, use and end of life. MBDC (McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry) protocols guided the choice of key materials, so that Think includes those deemed completely safe for the environment - nothing banned, restricted or harmful.
Think is up to 99% recyclable by weight. The stool can be easily dissembled in about 5 minutes, using ordinary hand tools. Parts weighing more than 50g are clearly labeled for recycling. To reduce overall material usage, Think weighs only 32 pounds - a fraction of the weight of comparable stools. It contains up to 44% recycled materials, and absolutely no PVCs, CFCs, solvents, benzene, chrome, lead or mercury.
Designed for long life, Think is easy to repair, reconfigure and upgrade. Seat and back cushions, arms, headrest and lumbar adjustments can be easily added, changed or replaced. Think was designed to be made with minimal waste, energy consumption and environmental impact. Powder-coat painting is VOC-free and free of heavy metals. No gluing processes are used in assembly.
To reduce shipping, stools are manufactured close to customers in Europe and North America, and beginning 2005 in Asia. Because the Think stool is lightweight, it requires less energy for shipping. Think is available to ship ready-to-assemble, which uses less packaging and allows more stools per shipment.
