The new Broom chair does look a bit swoopy from the side, but the shell is designed to "cradle" you - its generous and comfortable.

Some clarification. Coke asked us to reincarnate our aluminum Navy chair in rPET about five years ago, and the 111 Navy was launched last April in Milan. It started shipping last summer and was 20% of our total sales for 2010. It is made of rPET from Coke's own plant in Spartanburg SC – 65% rPET and 35% glass fiber (for strength). We upcycled about 2,000,000 bottles in 2010, we estimage 5M by next year. This new chair is recyclable into new chairs. It’s about half the price of our aluminum chair - with a five year warranty. Our aluminum Navy chair remains about 25% of our total production, and selling better than ever.
