Material from recycled waste or renewable raw materials offers future-oriented alternatives to plastics. Exhibitors at interzum 2019 presented new and innovative solutions.
In the manufacture of furniture and its components, recycled or biomaterial is now a serious alternative to plastic. This was proven by various exhibitors at this year's interzum with new products. For example, the furniture fittings of the Swedish manufacturer Ackurat are already being produced with “ocean-waste material”, recycled fishing nets or wood fibers. The company uses biodegradable material from up to 80 percent renewable resources. By 2020, 100 percent of fossil-free materials will come into production of the company.
