Overview

Designing for Sustainability

We believe the only way to provide the best office furniture solutions is to ensure they’re the best products for the environment. That’s why every step of the way – through design, manufacturing, delivery and product lifecycle – we consider the impact of our work on people and on the environment and uncover opportunities to make things better.

Product Life Cycle

Product Life Cycle

Turning Insights into Action

We concentrate our efforts on understanding the life cycle impacts of our products – from materials extraction, production, transport, use and reuse, through the end of life. These efforts continue to yield deep insights that influence every facet of our operation.

We contribute to the growing body of research around social impact life cycle assessments. We also bridge research with practical realities, creating actionable practices and standards.

Recycling + Reuse

Recycling + Reuse

Closing the Loop

Good design and choosing the right materials can ensure a product will be desirable and have a long life. It also can ensure the product can be recycled. Our products are designed for easy disassembly, allowing pieces to be separated easily and quickly for replacement or recycling.

Our products are built to last; sometimes they outlast customer needs. Therefore, we offer multiple programs to extend a product’s lifespan through reuse and recycling, refurbishing and donating. These end of use services keep furniture out of landfills, provide non-profit organizations with needed resources and help customers meet their sustainability goals.

Materials Chemistry

Materials Chemistry

Knowing. Acting. Solving.

We take a comprehensive approach to understanding what goes into our products – we’re both precautionary and proactive.

Unmatched in our industry, our materials chemistry practice assesses materials to understand their potential impacts on human and environmental health. To date, we have assessed over 1,500 materials. We are actively working with our supply chain to eliminate and phase out materials of concern – and to develop suitable alternatives where they may not yet exist.

Resilient Real Estate

When you bring people together with a shared purpose in a place that supports their physical, cognitive and emotional needs — you can actually fuel engagement and improve organizational performance.

Space as an Adaptive System

Amongst the whirlwind of volatility that seems to spin from one crisis to the next, business leaders are looking for new skills and strategies that will help their organizations thrive in the new global economy. At the same time, in this era of unprecedented complexity, the study of resilience has emerged in which scientists, economists, government leaders and psychologists are working to understand how systems, organizations and people can adapt to stay fit within an environment of constant change.

Wellbeing

Wellbeing: A Bottom Line Issue

When IBM asked CEOs around the world to identify the most important leadership traits needed today, their answer was resounding: collaborative, communicative, creative and flexible. CEOs are seeking “employees with the ability to constantly reinvent themselves. These employees are comfortable with change; they learn as they go, often from others’ experiences,” notes the study. Driving the need for these skills is the complexity of problems that organizations face today, and the demand for innovation that is no longer the turf of elite, top brands. Innovation is critical to drive bottom line results.
