SUSTAINABLE & ETHICAL
møbel og rum believe in great design but also the importance of the Who, Why and How as much as the What.
møbel og rum do not follow trends, instead making timeless designs that are not mass produced. Whether it's porcelein vases crafted on Bornholm using 100% green energy or 100% recycled plastic fabric cushions hand sewn in Copenhagen, they practise sustainable and ethical production throughout, producing products with minimum impact.
Their cushions are made using 100% post consumer recycled polyester (PET), otherwise known as plastic bottles. These textiles are made using a process that is efficient, resulting in less energy with CO2 emissions minimised. Combined with 100% wool, this natural fibre is a renewable resource, and being naturally soil resistant it reduces the need to wash. Fabrics are dyed without AZO dyes and no brominated flame retardants are used.
møbel og rum collaborate with organisations that help people facing physical, mental or social barriers to enter the labour market. They make quality crafted products for people who care about how their purchase impacts the environment and the people who made them.
