Part 5: Inside and outside cover
Building a sustainable piece of furniture takes experience, craftsmanship and in our case: an extra dose of 100% natural materials from only sustainable sources. We chose to build furniture only in this way, because we believe that we should not live with, or sit and sleep on anything that is built using harmful materials. Harmful for nature, our environment or our own health.
About two thirds of the earth's surface is covered by oceans. If you calculate in three-dimensional space and add the volume at depth, they even take up 90% of the total living space on earth. While we can get a good impression of the flora and fauna of the coastal areas by diving and snorkelling ourselves, only a fraction of the dark deep sea has been explored, estimated to be no more than 5%. But even here the human being has already left traces in the form of microplastics.
Part 2: Building the wooden frame
In our previous article we explained how we take an idea to a sketch and then turn it into a complete 3D model to eventually create a plastic free sofa using only proven building techniques and 100% natural materials that won’t harm our health or environment.
Part 1: Planning and prototyping
We're showing our exact production process of how we are building an eco-sustainable sofa (Casquet) here at D3CO while using only natural and non-toxic materials. From idea to finished product, have a look at our 6 part series.
Eight criteria how to look behind the greenwashing and find products that are eco-sustainable and responsibly sourced and made.
Green furniture, eco-friendly furniture, ethical furniture, sustainable furniture. There is a multitude of eco-labels, green certificates and promises. But very little true regulation of what should go into the objects that live with us in our home. Here are eight aspects that you should look for, if you are interested in having furniture that is responsibly made, contains no toxins and recycles well.
