Kirei
Kirei Board
www.kireiusa.com
This product takes rapidly renewable Sorghum straw and creates a low-emitting, functional product that adds depth and dimension to a space. Lightweight and durable, Kirei Board performs beautifully as millwork or furniture.

Bonded Logic
UltraTouch Denim Insulation
www.bondedlogic.com
This high-performing insulation reincarnates denim jeans into a genius new life. Safe to work with, requiring no masks or gloves, inherently fire, smoke, and fungi resistant, with the added plus of being 100 percent recyclable, UltraTouch is a versatile functional product that performs.

3form
3form panels

3form has an inner corporate beauty that emanates from within. The strong, flexible, products and range of textures and transparencies are highly usable and applicable in myriad spaces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Viveca Bissonnette
Sustainability is a big-picture initiative that requires commitment and innovative thinking. These manufacturers are committed to that holistic approach:

Crossville
EcoCycle Porcelain Tile
www.crossvilleinc.com
Crossville is looking beyond its own sphere of expertise and turning to other industries like the mining industry. It invested in a water filtration system to capture fine particulate matter during manufacturing that previously would have been land filled and is using it to create the new EcoCycle series.

Knoll
The Graham Collection
www.knoll.com
Knoll has established FSC-certified wood as its standard on all open plan office systems, casegoods, and tables, backing up the idea that there should be no premium for sustainability. The Graham Collection is available in FSC-certified composite wood and manufactured using low-VOC, clean technology.

Shaw Contract Group
Couture Collection, Dissolve Tile
www.shawcontractgroup.com
With the implementation of programs like Cradle to Cradle certification, Shaw Contract Group is looking to innovation to maximize material value and minimize its impact on the environment as a whole.
