Sustainability can mean so many things, especially in Furniture making.
What aspect is most important?
- Plastic recycling is often an illusion
- Why there is so much plastic in our food chain
- The first step is awareness
One's own home should be a healthy place of well-being where one can live, love and work. No matter what the apartment looks like - it should definitely be furnished in a healthy and sustainable way. Consumers nowadays choose eco-friendly furniture, preferably made without plastic or toxic additives.
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
High quality and longevity through certified wood. We’re now going to engage in construction of the wooden under-frame which is the foundation for the sofa. Since we designed the piece in 3D, we can precisely measure any parts for the wooden construction. We pride ourselves in longlasting, sustainable products and make all of our frames out of solid, FSC or PEFC certified wood.
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 biosofa while using only natural and non-toxic materials. From idea to finished product, have a look at our 6 part series.
