The Swedish designer and creative director Emma Olbers is on a mission – to design good products. Products that are good from all aspects, including being good for our planet. As one of the Swedish pioneers in sustainable design she is renowned as one of the furniture industry’s climate crusaders, an effort for which she has been awarded several prestigious awards.
”I believe that sustainability and product lifecycles are key concerns and core values that I strives to incorporate in my work. Those concerns can translate into using recyclable and reusable components, thinking carefully of which materials to use and of course avoiding the use of harmful substances in production altogether. An ultimate vision is to be able to create products and furniture that, after a long and rich furniture life, can go directly on the compost heap when they are scrapped”, she explains.
