Sustainability has been at the heart of our business. Our mission is to create furniture that positively contributes to human health and the environment. In a world consumed by a throw-away culture, we are dedicated to challenging this unhealthy mindset when it comes to furniture. We firmly believe that good furniture is not a fleeting fashion item; it is an enduring piece worth caring for and passing down to future generations. This is what we call 'Slow Design.'

Slow Design

We find ourselves living in a time where products are haphazardly manufactured, designed to quickly fall apart after a few uses, and offered at meagre costs. This relentless cycle drives consumers to constantly purchase and replace items. However, we must recognize that this mindset is far from acceptable. On ethical and sustainable grounds, we must remember that the objects we buy are created by real human hands, utilizing resources taken from our planet.

Slow Design encompasses much more than just considering the ethical and sustainable aspects of production. It also entails contemplating the journey of a product post-production, how it will age, and how it will be integrated into our lives. Our furniture are thoughtfully designed to age gracefully, to acquire character as they are lived with, rather than deteriorating over time. By default, this means creating higher-quality pieces that can withstand the test of time. Unlike their cheaper counterparts, our furniture is not destined to break down or lose its appeal within a year of use. While our pieces may come at a higher cost, they eliminate the need for frequent replacements that come with opting for inferior alternatives.

Every purchase becomes an investment, not only in the skilled individuals who design and craft our furniture but also in the future of our planet. By choosing quality products that do not require frequent replacement, we actively contribute to reducing the waste that ends up in our landfills. We firmly believe in transparency throughout the entire production process, from manufacturing to transportation to sustainability. Consumers have the right to know how their furniture is made, and it is through this transparency that we set the standard for what true design represents.

Carefully Chosen Materials

Our furniture is made with natural materials, colours and textures, soft profiles and nature-inspired ergonomic shapes, to create spaces that are more human, welcoming and personal. We focus on the quality of materials which  have minimal to no chemical processing and harmful additives. They are carefully sourced for longevity and the ability to grow more beautiful with age and use. The longevity of our furniture in itself means that it is a better choice for our environment.

1. Woods

All products are made of high-quality hardwood, sustainably sourced from certified forests in North America and Europe. Traditionally, only wood with an “ideal” grain structure makes it to market and this essentially creates a lot of waste. We decided to put a minimal restriction on the grain structure of the wood materials to reduce waste and to embrace the already unique character traits.

2. Finishes

Our premium organic plant-based finishes are non-toxic, food-safe and repairable. It contains a sophisticated combination of natural resins and waxes that together fused into the wood to create a durable, water-repellent, and water-mark-resistant finish while preserving the delicate, luminous beauty of raw wood. Our water-based and furniture-grade lacquer is non-toxic meets EU standards, and enhances the durability of the products.

3. Wood Care

We want to create pieces that our customers can truly live with and love for years. Solid wood furniture is an investment that requires time to maintain. We gained invaluable insights from experts within the industry and we want to share these learnings with you. We developed a wood care guide as well as maintenance services that provide daily care tips and repair methods to make pieces last a lifetime.
