FSC accredited supplier - De Vorm'

Great Dane Contract is pleased to announce that our newest supplier, de vorm, produces durable Furniture with minimum stress to the environment.  Thus, they are only using wood for their timber furniture that has been marked with the FSC quality label (Forest Stewardship Council).

That means, their wood is coming from well-administrated forests, where ecological and social effects are valued.  Furthermore they are using the best construction methods, foam qualities, springs and high-quality fabrics and leather with high abrasion resistance.  After all, furniture is only durable if it actually has been around for a while.

During the foundation of De Vorm in 2005, nature has been not only an immense inspiration to them, but also forms the origin for their furniture designs.  Real environmental friendliness starts at the origin. De Vorm sources as many environmentally friendly materials as possible during the production, packaging and transportation of their products.  For example, the coating, they are using for the wood, is based on water and the production waste is directly recycled in their studio.  Most of their products are easy to dismantle, which enables a minimum of environmental stress.  First of all, small parts mean less product volume during transportation.  Secondly, it’s easy to replace just one part, in case of damage, rather than the whole product, which avoids and entire new production process.

De Vorm produces mainly in the Netherlands and its creative minds are always looking for new materials made of recycled goods. On top of that, De Vorm owns its own forest, which compensates the CO2-emissions.
