At Figueras, our commitment extends to being the foremost partner in designing and crafting high-end, movable seating solutions for public spaces, with a dedicated effort to minimize, mitigate, and neutralize the environmental and social impact of our activities.
Innovative and Sustainable Design
We embrace the principles of eco-design, persistently seeking new and more intelligent ways to design and manufacture our products, ensuring they have the least possible impact on our planet while maintaining the highest quality. To uphold these ideals, we adhere rigorously to the ISO 14001 standard, a globally recognized and voluntary certification that attests to Figueras’ exceptional environmental performance.
Figueras Seating also holds certification in the management standard UNE-EN ISO 14006, an environmental accreditation specific to the design process of our products. This certification affirms Figueras’ consideration of environmental aspects, including the sustainable sourcing of materials, and the use of eco-friendly processes.
Eco-Friendly Fabrics: 100% Recycled Polyester
Recognizing the environmental impact of waste, and in our pursuit of a circular economy focused on material reuse to reduce waste, Figueras has introduced a line of upholstery crafted from 100% recycled polyester. Opting for this sustainable finish is an option that not only minimizes our ecological footprint but also actively contributes to the planet’s long-term sustainability.
Figueras is committed to eco-friendly, high-quality products that meet each project’s needs, aesthetically pleasing while deeply embedding ecological values. Within an Eco-Design approach, our designers aim to create products that are more sustainable and have a reduced environmental footprint:
- Selection of low-impact materials: choosing materials that have minimal impact in terms of extraction, processing, and disposal.
- Energy efficiency: designing products to consume less energy during their entire lifecycle.
- Design for Longevity: Durability is one of Figueras Seating’s hallmarks. Creating products that will last longer reduces the need for frequent replacement.
- Design for reuse or recycling: Choosing product components that can be easily disassembled and reused or recycled at the end of the product’s life.
- Reduction of Waste: Minimizing the amount of waste generated during the production process and by the end-user.
- Reduction of Toxic Substances: Avoiding or reducing the use of toxic materials and chemicals in the manufacturing process.
- Efficiency in Manufacturing: Streamlining the production process to minimize energy and material use.
EcoDesign not only revolutionizes our products but also profoundly enhances the working lives of our employees. By integrating EcoDesign principles, we create a healthier workplace with reduced exposure to toxic materials and pollutants. This commitment to using environmentally friendly materials and processes translates to safer manufacturing conditions, fostering a culture of well-being.
