Environment friendly furniture is our main passion. We at Onchange fight for a better environment, providing high quality eco-design products with an affordable price. We put our vast knowledge and expertise on our work aiming always for environment friendly furniture. Our ambition is to provide design services and collections gathering the very best ecological design ideas and eco products with timeless appeal and qualities that outlive temporary trends.
We apply several eco design concepts leaving room for a better environment. Firstly our raw materials are chosen carefully. We use sustainably harvested wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Using sustainably harvested woods can mean using softer but fast growing trees like pine, ash or poplar and grass like bamboo. At the same time, some of our furniture is made from reclaimed wood that has been removed from old houses or other structures. We prefer fabrics like organic cotton and wool that have fewer negative effects on the environment than synthetic fabrics such as polyester. We try to avoid the massive use of iron and paints or varnishes containing chemicals like tolulene that can cause respiratory and other health problems.
Onchange developed design solutions that allow for a reduction of co2 emissions on our products transportation. Our ecological friendly furniture is divided in several parts thus generating smaller and optimized packages with affordable transport costs. Goods transportation is a major source of carbon emissions and any effort on packaging and shipping optimization reduces enormously our environment footprint.
We also make our clients happier interlocking our products with fun and creating beautiful objects. Please join us on this quest for a better environment. You enjoy our intelligent joinery and you will be able to pack and store our furniture in a very convenient way. Our design simplicity is also a charm source, beautiful and cleverly functional. Our ambition is to watch our furniture achieving a beautiful patina with the passing of the years.
