A-Z of the future workplace:

Sustainability

Our top 5 sustainable materials

1. Living Walls
Living walls increase oxygen levels in indoor spaces. They naturally regulate the rate of humidity indoors and outdoors throughout all seasons. Living walls reduce the sound level within buildings and outdoors by refracting, reflecting, and absorbing acoustic energy. External green walls improve thermal insulation, making them nearly 20 degrees cooler than buildings without.

 

2. CircuitBac Green by Interface
CircuitBac Green flooring uses a mix of bioplastics and mineral filler. The biobased content in the flooring means that it absorbs more carbon than it emits during its production. The total recycled and biobased content for a product using CircuitBac Green can be as high as 87%.

 

3. Corkwood by Quadrant
Corkwood combines the traditional look of wood flooring with the remarkable features and environmental benefits of cork. Corkwood is part of the Climate+ Collection, a carbon negative, high performance, PVC free, floating floor based on cork. Quadrant believe that products of the future should be more than just a collection of features, they should be sustainable, healthy, practical, and have a positive impact on the planet.

 

4. Agile Spaces
The cost of real estate is increasing, so paying for empty chairs at empty desks isn't efficient. Going agile allows you to create a greener and smarter office environment, improving sustainability, while reducing cost and a company's carbon footprint.

 

5. Axyl by Senator
The chair shells and stood tops are available in recycled wood fibre and recycled nylon. Recycled agglomerate "recon" foam is used for the cushion, made from chipping down foam off-cuts and then forming them back together. These chairs are an efficient way of re-using waste product from the furniture industry.
