Made to last
Each forest is different, just as every tree is different: the roughness of the bark, the scent of resins, the strength of the wood, its veins, the texture of its living fabric, its clear personality. Finding the most sustainable way to make furniture for you, this is what we do at POET. You must have strong legs, and hands as big as the heart, to be a lumberjack. Wood veneers are an excellent material choice for many furniture pieces due to their clean look and the variety of colors and styles available. Wood veneer is actually far better for the environment. As it’s solid wood sliced into multiple pieces, it means much more can be made out of one piece of wood. Meaning less trees, which is always a good thing. There are also lots of design possibilities for wood veneer furniture. Since veneer is far thinner than solid wood, it allows designs and arrangements of the wood that solid wood just couldn’t achieve. Good quality wood veneer furniture is also very stable. This is because the veneer is glued to a stable substrate, so the surface isn’t prone to warping or splitting.Our top quality veneers are made to withstand the test of time and weather conditions.
Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in the materials we use to create eco-friendly furniture that is free from hazardous chemicals and produced with minimal environmental impact. Our STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX ocean fabrics, made from recycled ocean plastic, are a prime example of our commitment to reducing plastic waste in our oceans and protecting marine life. We prioritize ethical production methods and fair labor practices, ensuring that our furniture is both beautiful and responsible.
Steel is a unique metal that offers a range of benefits for both the environment and the economy. As one of the most suitable metals for recycling, steel requires little maintenance, can be reused an infinite amount of times, and has a 100% recyclable end-of-life condition. This means that steel is a permanent resource that can be recycled without any loss of quality, making it a sustainable choice for a wide range of applications. In addition to its strength and recyclability, steel is also widely available, versatile, and affordable. We prioritize the use of steel in our products, knowing that this metal offers a range of benefits for both our customers and the environment.
Stainless steel is playing an important role in sustainable design and alternative energy evolution. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable into the same product with no reduction in quality. Stainless steel is the “green material” par excellence and is infinitely recyclable. Not only regards to the intrinsic ability to be completely recycled but also because of the absence of polluting elements both during the active life of the metal and during the scrapping and recovery. Thanks to the fact that the production processes of stainless steel requires much less power consumption than the processing and manufacturing of other metals. Thanks to the characteristic rust resistance of stainless steel, this material does not need further coverings or coatings like paint, that are not easily disposable once scrapped, and which would produce toxic fumes in the event of combustion.
Glass is often referred to as a Green product, because the main component to making glass is Silica. Found in sand, Silica is considered a renewable and never ending resource. When glass breaks down, it remains safe and stable, and releases no harmful chemicals into the soil. So even when glass isn't recycled, it does minimal harm to the environment. Of course, when it comes to recycling, glass is among the most recyclable materials on the planet – 100 percent recyclable, in fact. It has an unlimited life and can be melted and recycled endlessly to make new glass products with no loss in quality. In the glass making process, we can use up to 90% of recycled glass, what means we can reduce the use of virgin raw materials and energy in the glassmaking process.
