Why do we make 100% natural furniture?

 

 - Our Mission -

We are a family of furniture makers. We strive for a healthy home. A safe place for our children. When we think of the future, we envision a sustainable economy that preserves the planet and leaves no waste products.

For this reason we decided to produce furniture unlike any other company by using only 100% natural materials. We are working towards a more sustainable lifestyle by making our home products entirely biodegradable, free of any risky materials and toxins and also extremely durable. We put sustainability and transparency first in everything we do. It is hard work, and it is expensive - but only on the surface.

To us, furniture means life, memories and heritage. Our pieces are made to be proudly passed on to the next generation, and the joy of being involved in a project that is turned towards the future motivates us every day.

Our mission is ongoing...


No plastic waste

A standard sofa usually contains 30-40 kg of polyurethane foam. That equals the average annual consumption of plastic packaging of an adult in the western world. We think this waste can be avoided. We think sofas - and other furniture - should be made in a way to contain no plastic at all.

Making furniture last for generations

We think that sofas should be made in a way that they can be re-upholstered, re-newed and inherited by the next generation. A classic polyurethane product is made of one block that just tires out and has to be thrown away. We on the other hand work in layers. Wood, Jute belts, springs, wool padding, latex, goose down, textiles. All layers can be individually repaired and replaced if need be. The product you rest on is healthy, more comfortable, and lasts for a generation - or two.

Local certified production and control

We have been producing plastic free furniture for the last ten years. Since the beginning, we have been choosing local providers to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible, and also to keep a tight control on what goes into our products. We look at our suppliers carefully and we are running a workshop production that is both sustainable and human. We know who lays hand on the product at all stages of the process.

No toxines

When thinking about home furniture, surely style and colour is important. But never at the cost of our health. Breathing the air in our rooms, resting our head on our sofa should be risk free. There should be no toxines in our home products. There should be nor risk of allergies through poorly finished or treated materials. We believe in putting only good things into the objects we sell, because we live our lives on them and breathe them in. And we make sure our suppliers have the ecological certifications we require.

We teach our method

We have been sharing our way of producing and methods at the University of Bologna and the Academy of Visual arts of Frankfurt. We hope that soon all furniture will be produced like ours, and that the focus will once more be on quality and durability rather than on rapid fashions and consumption. We want to be part of that change.

 - Our Mission -

 
Climate change and plastic waste have come to the forefront of the news yet again in recent years.

It means that we need to work harder.
It means there is still a long way to go.

We have changed - for our tomorrow.
Have you?
