Roche Bobois Launchs its Ecodesign Programme
The Legend collection is the first ecodesign initiative in the programme.
As with any manufactured product, pieces of furniture can have a negative impact on the environment as manufacturing requires materials and energy, as does packaging and transportation. As such, Roche Bobois is commited to limiting the environmental impact of its production.
In 2006, Roche Bobois launched its ecodesign programme with the aim of improving the environmental profile of its products. To measure these improvements the brand created a quality assessment tool, known as «Eco6», which enables both new eco-designed products to be developed and existing products to be redesigned in order to improve their ecological quality.
Roche Bobois is convinced that environmental quality is just as important as the quality of production, creativity and innovation. For this reason the brand has decided to embark on an ambitious sustainable production programme.
The LEGEND collection, the first ecodesign initiative in the programme, symbolises this commitment. Its design, which pays homage to the tree as a symbol of renewable materials, as well as its traditional method of assembly, make this collection a statement of respect for the environment.
