Sneak Peek: Knu Sustainable Modern Furniture

Posted on May 2, 2007 Under Design

Come August, my household will lose a roommate (to grad school in Austin) and gain a whole extra room which, if I have any say in the matter, will be a sleek new office. The timing is perfect, really, because September sees the launch of Knú, a line of office furniture from the Industrial Woodworking Corporation, who’ve been at the forefront of sustainability and environmental stewardship since 1995, and have just been certified as offsetting 100% of their carbon emissions through’s CarbonFreeâ„¢ business program. From their manufacturing process to a paper-free marketing campaign to their management’s air travel and company vehicle usage, the company is producing a line of home office furniture that’s not only totally sexy, but totally green in every sense of the word from start to finish. For now, the site is informative in nature (it’ll go live for orders in September), and you can read all about their extensive efforts to reduce their carbon footprint here. As for me, I think the only trouble I’ll have here is making up my mind which one to add to my home office.
