Carbon footprint on furnitures
My focus when designing furniture is that they should be as environmental friendly as possible, which for me is as low greenhouse gas emissions as possible. The choice of material is the most important, it accounts for about 50% of a furniture’s total emissions/CO2e. Longevity is another important parameter and then they must be able to be recycled and repaired. I take help from the matrix with material that IVL Swedish Environmental Institute helped me make for the exhibition Where does it come from? 2016. The pictures are from the exhibition.
