Product Story

Duvaltex and Steelcase both share a strong commitment towards sustainability. Over the last two decades, this commitment has enabled both organizations to partner together to bring several sustainable breakthrough innovations to market.

Building on this relationship, Duvaltex and Steelcase have collaborated to create Intersection. Based on Duvaltex's OCEAN WASTE CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES™ technology, Intersection uses upcycled ocean waste plastic from the SEAQUAL™ initiative to transform it into beautiful and compelling screen and panel fabrics.

This innovative sourcing approach contributes to a collective effort to clean our oceans and reduce plastic pollution worldwide. The SEAQUAL™ initiative collaborates with fishermen, NGOs, researchers, scientists, authorities, and private stakeholders to collect waste from our oceans. Once collected, it is categorized, separated, and cleaned. Plastics are processed and upcycled into polymer to be used as yarn, then transformed into Intersection, an industry-leading sustainable fabric, while helping clean oceans and its shores of ocean waste plastics.

For every pound of Intersection fabric produced using OCEAN WASTE CLEAN IMPACT TEXTILES™, up to half a pound of marine waste is removed from the ocean. Above all, it is designed with sustainability in mind, while being manufactured for recyclability.

Beyond its positive environmental impact, Intersection is designed with a small crisscross pattern woven alongside a subtle pucker, providing a unique three-dimensional visual. Comprised of a fresh and modern cotemporary color palette, Intersection is available in 17 beautiful colors. Now available in North America and can be applied to a wide range of screens and panels, including VIA, Mackinac and Steelcase Flex.
