New NOEM range of furniture, by Nutcreatives, based on the criteria of ecoinnovation

After months of investigation, creation and development the Nutcreatives studio introduces two pieces the first furniture range designed to their own production vision. The first prototype of the NOEM chair was presented last year at the Stockholm furniture trade show where it caused great interest. Design, innovation, quality, traceability The NOEM chair and high stool are the first pieces of a new collection of furniture designed and released by Nutcreatives based on the criteria of ecoinnovation: both pieces are manufactured with complete traceability, taking into account the environmental aspects of the entire product lifecycle. The design of the furniture strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and ergonomics, resulting in furniture that is durable, comfortable and intuitive. In this way they endow all their creations with a superb quality, delicacy and creativity and a strong commitment to contemporary aesthetics and design. Sustainable Products The objective of the Nutcreatives studio was to build a local furniture production base capable of reducing the distances between the different production centres, based on the criteria of social responsibility while responding to design requirements and the client relationship. The work of investigation and development realized by Nutcreatives for this project offers clear and transparent environmental information: the furniture is manufactured with environmentally certified materials and known suppliers. Seats and backs are made from birch plywood with a beech veneer. The legs are formed from solid FSC beech wood and the joints in steel; in addition all the varnishes and paints use water-based solvents. The furniture is designed in such a manner that it can be transported in a flat container for efficient distribution. The first collection is presented in three colors: white, yellow and dark grey (anthracite).
