Sustainable materials and eco-design
Woven by design house Gabriel, founded in 1851 in Denmark, EASY’s textile is made of polyester recycled from plastic bottles (at a rate of 75 to 98% depending on the fabric). The textile boasts the “OEKO-TEX 100” label, a very demanding international standard in terms of respect for the health of the user and the environment, as well as the “EU Ecolabel”, the European reference for eco-designed products.
The cushions are filled with recycled foam flakes (note: the seat is a “virgin”, high-resilience foam made in France. Despite our tests, it is not yet possible to create a sufficiently comfortable seat in recycled foam). Finally, the structure of the sofa is made of steel, the most recycled material worldwide and infinitely recyclable.
Unlike most sofas where the use of glue and staples makes the materials virtually inseparable, EASY is a model of recyclability: each element can easily be disassembled at the end of its life (steel, foam, textile) to be recycled.
