Dutch producing wholesaler of professional furniture, Schaffenburg, presented a promising innovation during their annual dealer event last Friday.
Schaffenburg teamed up with Greek designer Spyros Kizis, who, as part of his graduation project, invented a bio-plastic made from artichoke thistle and seeds pressed with bio-resin.
Not only is the end-product rock solid and 100% bio-degradable, but when thrown away, the embedded seeds will germinate and grow new artichoke thistles.
Meet the Arti Collection, part of Schaffenburg’s product development strategy to focus on cradle-to-cradle.
