Innovative eco-design, new production methods, designers imagine what will constitute our objects of tomorrow.
Linen, labeled wood, nettle fiber, Abaca fiber (from a variety of banana tree), apple are becoming new values for eco-design and reinventing raw materials.
The Nanimarquina brand is one of the emblematic brands with its collection of rugs. For Nanimarquina , taking care of the environment is a major concern, she strives to improve her work by using biodegradable and recycled products, experimenting with different types of textures and fibers. Traditional production techniques also help preserve natural resources.
In addition, recycled and reconditioned products using innovative production methods are used as a priority.
Thus, a notable example, the plastics that pollute our oceans can be recovered and incorporated into the manufacture of certain fabrics or furniture.
The brand Normann Copenhagen uses to cover its seats the “oceanic” fabric born from the recycling of plastic waste recovered from the oceans
. Oceanic is OEKO-TEX® Standard, Indoor Air Quality Certified and ANSI/BIFMA Furniture Emissions Standard compliant.
The approach is continuing in the fields of packaging, made to measure to avoid over-packaging and using ecological boxes produced locally. The use of packaging plastics is reduced to a minimum, thus favoring the use of natural alternative materials, such as wood shavings or straw.
For the SECTO design brand , recycling and sorting waste are priorities throughout the manufacturing process and all wood waste is delivered to a waste-to-energy plant.
The packaging, tailor-made for each model, is made from locally produced ecological cardboard. The use of plastics has been kept to a minimum and more environmentally friendly alternative materials are constantly being introduced.
