Gispen Sett is a characteristic designer sofa providing amazing comfort. Designer Peter van de Water sought and found a unique balance between simplicity and comfort. The streamlined design and interesting details transform this sofa into a timeless model.
In addition to the original Sett sofa, Gispen has developed an improved, circular model to the series: Sett CE. This sofa is made out of no less than 95% recycled materials!
The shell of the sofa was created by 3D printing plastic waste. The foam of the seat and backrest, the polyester lining and the upholstery is also made of recycled materials. Moreover, all the materials this sofa consists of are separable; every single component can be reprocessed into a new product.
These innovative sustainable developments have been crowned with two awards: the Dutch Design Award and an award for Good Industrial Design.
Why is it so important to create a new resource out of plastic waste? Because plastic is worldwide problem that causes massive damage to the environment, people and animals. The equivalent of one truckload of plastic is dumped into the sea every minute. This equals 1440 truckloads every 24 hours and 8 BILLION kilos a year (source: plastic soup foundation).
We add value to plastic waste by reprocessing it into a designer product!
BY REPROCESSING RECYCLED MATERIALS, WE PREVENT THESE MATERIALS FROM BECOMING WASTE

Winner of the Dutch Design Award; a quote from the jury report:
"With this product, Gispen has produced the perfect result of years of research and development in the circular industry. The workable, circular system for a consumer product of this scale is praised and can serve as an example for the entire manufacturing industry. The innovation is not so much in its shape, but rather in the way it is created and how it functions. This is an example of the new aesthetic standard in circular design: the sofa does not advertise its sustainable features, instead its reuse of materials is silently incorporated into a timeless design."
