Sustainable office furniture

Beautiful and affordable

We reject the damaging practices of the office furniture industry which drive up costs, GHG emissions and waste.

Our 150 projects prove that every office can be beautiful, sustainable and cost less.

Furniture from virgin resources contributes 30% of the carbon footprint of a commercial building over its entire life [1].

We reduce this by 80% by:

1. Remanufacturing high quality used furniture (like Vitra and Herman Miller) to as-new condition in a quality-controlled engineering process

2. Creating exciting furniture from waste (e.g. plastic)

Benefits of our Circular Economy approach:

  • Reduced waste (including remanufacturing and resizing the best of clients’ existing furniture)
  • Social value, through the local long-term unemployed and disabled staff that we employ
  • Cost savings for clients

We offer free award-winning office design assistance, which has helped to create some of the UK’s most sustainable offices.

Our scale enables us to equip large offices with high quality sustainable furniture, electronics and flooring.

Furniture

We provide new furniture with an eye for value and sustainability, refurbish your existing items, or remanufacture brand name products back to as-new condition. We create significant cost savings with no compromise on quality.

We have also created our own innovative sustainable furniture ranges.

Remanufacturing

Remanufacturing is an engineering process that takes the durable elements of an office furniture item (such as steel frames), checks and refurbishes them, and then rebuilds the item around them.

The result looks and performs as new, but at a significant cost saving, both economically and environmentally.

We can also refurbish clients’ existing furniture for even greater savings.

Office design

Our science-led design approach makes it easy to create a wonderful workspace.

Through good design, we aim to improve your profits by maximising the use of your floorspace, improving staff productivity and reducing furniture costs.

Our free office layout design service, by our award-winning team, creating workspaces that are comfortable, beautiful, sustainable and affordable.
