Exciting news! Framery 2Q has been named a winner in this year’s GREEN GOOD DESIGN Awards.
“To be honored by such an esteemed organization for our efforts in sustainability is truly an honor.”
Framery strives to make the most environmentally and climate-responsible choices, and the manufacturing of Framery 2Q was no exception. “To be honored by such an esteemed organization for our efforts in sustainability is truly an honor,” says Founder and CEO of Framery, Samu Hällfors. “We are thrilled that Framery 2Q was recognized in such an important and distinguished program.”
A subprogram of the GOOD DESIGN Awards, which was founded in Chicago in 1950 by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design
and Urban Studies, the GREEN GOOD DESIGN’s goal is to bestow international recognition to outstanding individuals, companies, organizations, governments, and institutions who create products,
services, programs, ideas, and concepts that have forwarded exceptional thinking and inspired greater progress toward a healthier and sustainable universe. GREEN GOOD DESIGN aspires to impact consumer habits, restructure manufacturing output, influence the design of cities and public spaces, and raise a consciousness about our limited global resources and the disappearance of clean air, clean earth, and clean water.
“We are thrilled that Framery 2Q was recognized in such an important and distinguished program.”
The Framery 2Q meeting pod is conceptualized to combat the lack of privacy in an open office floor plan and is made of environmentally efficient birch plywood, which is a renewable material and all of the wood material suppliers have PEFC™ and FSC® certificates. The acoustic foam and the interior felt Framery uses is up to 60-70% recycled and a significant part of all steel, aluminum and glass is recycled. Additionally, the acoustic foam has been certified with M1 Emission Classification and acknowledged by the Finnish Allergy and Asthma Federation and all of the fabric used is EU Ecolabel marked. Framery also explores the most carbon neutral way to cut emissions from product transportation. When it comes to packaging the products, Framery has significantly reduced the volume of packaging used. In terms of direct energy efficiency, Framery uses specially-designed, automatically-adjusting LED lamps and ventilation systems for the pod.
