The production site in Sarrebourg has an ISO 14001 certified environmental management system. Eastside was designed to be made with minimal waste, energy consumption and environmental impact. Powder-coat painting is VOC-free and free of heavy metals; unused paint that does not attach to the product can be directly reused in the process. No gluing processes are used in assembly, and all urethane foam is water-based.


Eastside is lightweight and delivered stacked. Minimized packaging weight and volume help us improve filling rates and thus require less energy for shipping.


Eastside was designed for a long product life, with replaceable parts and textiles that are easy to change. There are no toxic substances in our eco-labelled textiles. Maintenance information is available in the User’s manual.
