In today’s fast-paced world, the need for sustainability has never been more pressing. As we strive to reduce our environmental footprint, innovative solutions are emerging across industries. Enter the Be Hybrid chair, a revolutionary sustainable hybrid seating solution.  The Be Hybrid Chair combines comfort with eco-conscious design, perfect for diverse working environments.  It’s manufactured by Vepa, who is furniture manufacturer with sustainability built into it’s DNA.

Versatile Comfort, Sustainable Design

The Be Hybrid chair is not just any chair; it’s a versatile companion designed to thrive in multi-user working environments. Whether you’re at the office, in a learning environment, a meeting place, or even at home, the Be Hybrid ensures comfort and functionality from the moment you sit down. With its intuitive one-button operation for height adjustment, finding your ideal seating position is effortless.

What sets the Be Hybrid apart is its commitment to sustainability. Made from 76% recycled content, this chair is a testament to responsible manufacturing practices. Apart from the cross-foot and gas spring, every component of the chair is crafted from waste materials—a win-win for users, companies, and the planet.



Innovative Support System

Comfort isn’t compromised for sustainability with the Be Hybrid. Its patented mechanism provides support in every seating position, adapting to the user’s movements seamlessly. By aligning hinge points with the user’s knee, hip, and pelvic joints, the chair ensures optimal weight distribution and pressure, promoting comfort and posture health for all users.


Pioneering Circular Design

As the most circular work chair in its class, the Be Hybrid embodies the principles of circular design. With 76% recycled content throughout—including the base—the chair represents a significant step towards a circular economy. While the journey towards 100% recycled materials continues, the Be Hybrid sets a precedent for sustainable innovation in the furniture industry.



Environmental Impact and Long-Term Goals

Understanding the environmental impact of products is crucial. The Be Hybrid boasts an Environmental Cost Indicator (ECI) of €1.90, reflecting its total environmental impact over its lifetime. Additionally, with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 11.77 kg CO2 equivalent, the Be Hybrid stands as a climate-conscious choice for environmentally conscious consumers.


Inspiring Sustainability Through Collaboration

Be Hybrid’s sustainability story is brought to life in an inspiring video by Be by Bèta, Vepa‘s sister company.
