Rezign

Office chairs made from textile waste

Brand: Planq

Applications: Interior seating

Rezign is a furniture line that includes tables, chairs and stools that offer new meaning to ‘tailor made.’ Over-stock and waste clothing are shredded, and the fibres are spun together to form webbed sheets that are then pressed to form rigid and formable surfaces. Rezign products can themselves be recycled at the end of their usage, thus closing the loop.

OUR APPROACH TO ACCREDITATION

There are a number of accreditation assessments available to manufacturers. Set by third party organisations such as BREEAM, LEED, UL and C2C, they offer prospective specifiers the opportunity to understand and evaluate what sustainability standards a given material may offer their project.

Wherever possible we showcase materials that have some form of accreditation but also recognise that acquiring them can be a costly and time consuming process, particularly for smaller brands.

We believe in transparency and think that an honest approach to materiality is key to making more sustainable decisions when planning our built environments.

We seek and promote material manufacturers that:

  • Consciously endeavour to choose raw materials based on provenance and quantity required
  • Aim to reduce the energy needed and pollution created in the production and transportation of their materials
  • Reuse resources and waste
  • Create regenerative materials
  • Utilise closed-loop production methods
