A Circular Furniture Showcase
In 2016, there were 550 million square feet of office space in New York City, providing work spaces for the around 1.5 million people. This makes New York City the world’s premier office market, and implies that how we design and fit out our office spaces, have the potential to be of global impact.
As to showcase how a range of different design companies and furniture manufactures have already taken on this call for action, Arup and Danish Cleantech Hub in New York are the initiators behind a Circular Furniture Showcase. We believe that a circular approach to furniture and interior design, entails an immense potential to create sustainable and livable office spaces. Well-designed and durable furniture will allow component reuse, informed material choices, and valuable takeback systems, just to name a few benefits.
The showcase was first exhibited at a high-level circular economy event hosted by the Danish Cleantech Hub on September 25th. The furniture was exhibited at stage and used as an active part of the conference. Subsequently the exhibition, in a slightly reduced version, have moved the New York HQ of Arup.
