Our current world is crumbling under the waste of our everyday objects, disposed of casually or simply programmed to experience a short life linked to hyper-industrial manufacturing. There is little notion or desire to be sustainable.
The eco design approach aims to return to a notion of timeless beauty, one that will survive the years without tiring, with pieces that can be transmitted to future generations.
In addition to the talent of the designer and the know-how of editors, it is necessary to take into account a selection of sustainable and recyclable raw materials, an absolute requirement in the quality of the end-result.
Our partner brands are at the forefront in the search for raw materials that adapt to this objective, both in the field of natural products such as wood and bamboo as in the choice of synthetic products such as polypropylene and bioplastic and a selection of aluminum and special steel for metals.
These are some of our partner brands illustrating this principle of sustainability:
Magis with The Officina collection reflects the work of the Bouroullec Brothers. For them, the role of designer is to explore in depth the material and its processing techniques. The upholstery fabrics are quality Kvadrat fabric covers with EU Ecolabel & Greenguard Gold Label characterized by low indoor polluting emissions.
Normann Copenhagen offers an injection molded polypropylene shell. This industrial process is associated with manual work: the solid wood base is manufactured and then assembled by hand by cabinet makers ensuring the solidity of the seats.
DCW éditions uses the highest quality materials such as aluminum, bakelite, stainless steel and ceramics for its lamp collections.
The Moroso brand uses a bioplastic derived from lignin, composed of 80% wood fibers and 20% polypropylene, for the manufacture of “Impossible Wood” chairs designed by Doshi & Levien. This allows exceptional durability.
With more than 50 years of experience in outdoor furniture (the Carlton and Martinez terraces in Cannes, etc.), the Vlaemynck brand uses aluminum for the structures of its furniture and the very resistant, easy-to-maintain Sling ® fabric. which is light and flexible.
