The furniture in your office is one of the key components to a successful design. If you are considering moving office or replacing some furniture in your current one, you should think about what materials you want to include in your design, how they are sourced and how they are manufactured.
There are an increasing number of furniture suppliers who are shaping the future of offices with unique eco-friendly designs.
Interface produce carpet tiles that are made from recycled fibres and bioplastics, creating longer-lasting solutions with a lower environmental impact during production.
Danish furniture design company, Mater, have recently released their Ocean Collection, which uses discarded fishing nets as the primary material to make durable chairs and tables. In fact, most of their products are made from sustainable woods, recycled plastics (even your old yoghurt pots) and aluminium.
Gabriel, the EU’s leading supplier of furniture fabrics, designs many products with the EU Ecolabel. These are fabrics that have a reduced environmental impact throughout their lifecycle – from production to recycling.
