Earth Stool is a circular bar stool designed by Danish architect Eva Harlou. Earth Stool is the result of a new innovative waste-to-value technique that enables Mater to reuse companies’ industrial waste, e.g. plastic waste and other fibre-based materials.
The seats are made from recycled industrial plastic waste from GROHE and coffee bean shells from BKI coffee. The technique is developed in collaboration with Danish Technological Institute with support from the University of Copenhagen. The waste materials are mixed in a unique compound suitable for press moulding – a method designed to reuse companies’ resources more efficiently. Earth Stool represents classic Scandinavian design with steel frames that make the bar stool elegant and timeless.
The new ground-breaking production technique allows Mater to reuse waste materials and turn it into useful and unique design solutions. Created to support a circular design thinking and the UN SDGs: “Responsible Consumption and Production” (SDGs 12), “Climate Action” (SDGs 13) and “Partnership for the Goals” (SDGs 17).

Eva Harlou is a Danish architect and designer who has also worked as a presenter on Danish TV shows focusing on architecture. After graduating from the Aarhus School of Architecture in 2003, Harlou started her successful career at the Copenhagen-based 3XN Architects, and in 2006 she opened her own studio. Harlou sees architecture and design as both handcraft and art, which gives an organic and imaginative undertone for her work. Still, her designs often settle in clear and functional forms. Thanks to their recognizable style, Harlou’s architectural projects have drawn a lot of attention, and since 2014 she has also contributed to the Scandinavian design world with her furniture and product designs.
