Sustainability for stadium seating


STADICHAIR and STADISEAT set new standards by upcycling and recycling

It all began in 2018 when founder Jonas Braamt built a chair from an old stadium seat purchased at the Arminia Bielefeld flea market. Today, the company produces sustainable ­stadium chairs regionally in East Westphalia, developing a suitable substructure for almost every stadium seat.

STADICHAIR gives discarded stadium seats a second life and emphasizes the importance of emotions by allowing fans to preserve a piece of their soccer history. The materials are sourced regionally to guarantee short delivery routes and German quality, prioritizing sustainability and regionality. STADICHAIR is dedicated to upcycle discarded, emotionally charged stadium furniture, and give it a second life. In addition to the stadium chairs, bar tables made from old floodlights have now also been added to the portfolio.

Since 2021, STADISEAT has been supplementing this cycle by recycling damaged stadium seats into granulate, which is then used to produce new, sustainable stadium seats. STADISEAT equipped the first stadiums with sustainable stadium seating in 2023 using a polyamide recyclate specially developed to meet the requirements of stadium seats. The aim is to have successfully completed the Blue Angel and Cradle to Cradle certifications by the end of 2024 at the latest.

Both companies are working together to create a closed circuit that includes both upcycling and recycling while supporting sustainability and climate goals. This approach not only protects the environment, but also provides an emotional connection for fans by preserving historical moments in the form of furniture.

STADISEAT also cooperates with the MBRC foundation and uses polypropylene recyclate from beach clean ups, for example in Indonesia, to produce stadium seats. This initiative helps to promote additional beach clean ups and other educational projects in the countries concerned.
