One of the revolutions that in recent years have affected the world of furniture in the most profound way, and consequently of interior design, is undoubtedly that of sustainability. But what does this mean? In a world of limited resources, with users increasingly attentive to the issue of consumption, aspects such as the duration of a product and the impact of its creation become fundamental.
It is undoubtedly a difficult challenge, but the brands on display at the Sag'80 Showrooms are proof that even in the field of luxury furniture, sustainable interior design is possible. How? First of all, by focusing on quality materials and enhancing them through constant and in-depth research, but also by offering users flexible solutions, capable of changing according to needs and therefore able to evolve with the home environment, becoming timeless.
INTERIOR DESIGN LUXURY AND GREEN IS POSSIBLE
If in the past the concept of luxury seemed somewhat opposite to that of sustainability, the perception of users has definitely changed. According to a changed sensitivity, also through the experience of the pandemic, for many people it is now essential to have a design idea that does not limit itself to thinking about the aesthetic aspect, but also takes into consideration the durability of a product, the origin of the used materials and the trend of the increasingly important logic of the circular economy.
The response of the industry is never late, and today an increasing number of companies and designers are able to find the right balance between the world of luxury and the greens, with more attention to materials that can be obtained in a sustainable and production processes redesigned to use fewer resources and waste less energy.
In more and more cases, the inspiration comes from nature itself, which sometimes literally becomes an integral part of the products, as happens with those obtained with organic materials, perhaps assembled with others obtained instead from recycling.
In short, the direction appears very clear and in some ways involves a total overturning of perspective: design, even luxury, to be considered of high quality must first of all be sustainable.
HOW TO FURNISH YOUR ENVIRONMENTS IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY
There are many ways to minimize your ecological footprint and shape a home that is sustainable. First of all, to help the user there are now labels such as the FSC, which, for example, help to understand which woods come from forests and manage sustainability.
But that's not all, because a green interior design comes first from design: to reduce energy consumption, and consequently emissions, it is necessary to think of environments that favor the exploitation of natural light and, even through the chosen colors, make those who live as little dependent as possible on artificial lights.
Finally, from a circular economy perspective, it is important to choose furniture that comes from materials that are already recycled or that, at the end of their life cycle, will be reusable again, even in other areas.
GREEN DESIGN DISCOVERING THE BRANDS CLOSER TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL THEME
There are many high-quality brands linked to the Sag'80 universe that have made sustainability a key principle of their production processes.
Among these, Vitra Furniture certainly stands out, the German company for which values such as functionality, design and quality represent the fundamental tools to ensure that every single piece produced can last as long as possible, thus reducing the need to create waste.
But there are more and more companies that work with this mindset, and even more, on the environment: for example, there is Arclinea, which equips its kitchens with original and avant-garde systems for the differentiation of waste, or Boffi, whose scrupulous research has made it possible to develop a latest generation material such as MDI, which is highly performing and resistant while being manufactured with sustainable methods and recycled materials.
