The GREEN GOOD DESIGN Awards is a subprogram of the GOOD DESIGN Awards, 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. Its 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 significant 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 consciousness about our limited global resources and the disappearance of clean air, clean earth, and clean water.
Designed to accommodate one person, the Framery O VCR serves as a office phone booth made for easy collaboration and virtual face-to-face conferencing. Framery O VCR has a stylish and durable design. Its exterior is composed of painted sheet metal or brushed stainless steel with sound-controlled laminated glass and inside. Framery designed the solid walls using recycled acoustic foam and birch plywood alongside a Formica-topped birch table. The product addresses the critical need for breakout spaces that support and connect people in the current environment as the remote worker population continues to grow.
Framery conceptualized and developed a fresh office pod configuration called Framery Q Flow. A single-person workstation that unleashes your inner workflow, Framery Q Flow is designed to support flexible work as well as heads-down tasks. As part of Framery’s ongoing commitment to making the most environmentally and climate-responsible choices, the company’s overall environmental management system is certified according to ISO 14001. 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.
Determined to improve their wood component sourcing, Framery has explored the most carbon-neutral way to cut emissions from product transportation. Even when it comes to packaging, Framery has replaced PVC tubes with recyclable cardboard tubes, significantly reducing the volume of packaging used. In terms of direct energy efficiency, they use specially-designed, automatically-adjusting LED lamps and ventilation systems for the pod.
This year, Framery has also joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Science-based targets are emission reduction goals strategically aligned with the historic Paris Agreement. This agreement will limit global warming to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.
