Copenhagen / Denmark
A responsible and sustainable building project in more than one sense. That is the essence of this office design, which speaks to the senses and the individual’s well-being, while the choices of furniture and décor at the same time are made based on quality considerations and a low climate impact.
Authenticity mixed with sustainability
An older office building was given a new life with a transformational makeover inside and out. Henning Larsen Architects and design studio SarahLou have been responsible respectively for the outer and inner lines. The brief was to create a welcoming and modern space on the ground floor, working as the heart of the building and naturally inviting customers and employees to meet, work, or take a break during a busy workday. Authenticity and sustainability have been keystones of the project. Thus, mainly modern furniture classics have been chosen to decorate the reception area and canteen. Long-lasting furniture of good quality and design and with an innate history as the Conscious Chair - a classic design by Børge Mogensen and Esben Klint but made in a new sustainable material – has been chosen for the project.
In the quieter corners and the Café area, The Dining Chair in FSC-certified oak has been used around round tables to create a more intimate meeting space.
With the Conscious Chair’s seat and back made in Mater’s circular material Matek,
a project of this magnitude equals almost 350 kg of recycled material.
In alliance with large corporations, Mater has invented a patented technology that recycles their fibre and plastic waste. This resulting in five new unique materials that we’ve named Matek®.
FSC® Certified wood
From the very beginning, we have used FSC-certified wood for all wooden products in our collection. In an FSC® certified forest, no more trees than the forest can reproduce are felled, so the exploitation of nature is avoided.
We unhesitatingly offer to take all our furniture made from Matek® back at the end of its life to recycle it into new furniture.
Repair for long lasting
Good products, are made to be used. To give the products the longest possible life, we want to make it easy for you to repair them yourself. Contact our customer service for more info her
The chairs are made of FSC® wood and Matek®
