Every year, 12 million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans. Much of that waste takes decades and even centuries to biodegrade*. Now, Intersection, a new and compelling screen and panel fabric made from Upcycled Marine Plastic has been developed by Steelcase, bringing new life to the office and removing ocean waste in the process.

Intersection is designed with a small crisscross pattern woven alongside a subtle pucker, providing a unique three-dimensional visual. The color offering provides fresh and modern options that fit within contemporary color palettes.
