In the two years since its launch, the eco furniture pioneerTAKThas won an international reputation for making cutting-edge contemporary design more accessible and affordable to the public.
The Copenhagen based brand’s modern, Scandi aesthetic, roster of leading international designers and intuitive self- assembly process (only 5 pieces are needed to build the Sling Chair below) have all played a significant part in its success, but it’s the extraordinary dedication to transparency and sustainability that has set a new benchmark for the industry.
B-Corp eco brand TAKT pioneers radical transparency in furniture market.
Name a more sustainable furniture company. We’ll wait… TAKT has broken new ground in the consumer furniture market by sharing a full lifetime carbon report for every product it produces.
From the moment materials are sourced to the very end of the product’s life, every carbon emission is quantified using the European Commission’s Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) guidelines, and independently verified by the Danish climate calculator MALBAR.
The report for each product includes CO2e impact figures for every stage in its making, distribution, use and disposal – making TAKT the only furniture company we’re aware of to track and publish emission figures for all its products after they leave the factory doors.
The figures are published prominently on each product page alongside a detailed price breakdown, so TAKT customers know that, pre-offsetting, their new Cross Chair for example, will cost the planet the same carbon emission as 83 hours of boxset bingeing on Netflix.
The success of TAKT’s Cross Chair by Pearson Lloyd is proof that environmentally friendly furniture can also be aesthetically pleasing and durable.
