Introducing ecoBirdy & Eikund
We are excited to announce a new alliance with two European brands.
With toys as the most intensive users of plastic, 90% of toys for babies and toddlers made out of plastic and an average lifetime of only 6 months, ecoBirdy gives plastic toys a new life.
EcoBirdy has created a system that goes from the collection and recycling of old, unused plastic toys to the design and production of furniture pieces. The collection of kids furniture pieces is entirely made of recycled plastic from European waste. Each step is based on social and environmental responsibility. An accompanying storybook and school-programme has been designed to introduce youngsters to the circular economy and inspire them to contribute to a more sustainable future.
The design, recycling and production of ecoBirdy furniture is all done in Europe.
Based in Antwerp, founders Vanessa Yuan and Joris Vanbriel come from different cultural backgrounds. After several professional experiences in diverse fields of the international high fashion and design industry, both aimed to create solutions for environmental problems using innovative technologies.
The new Norwegian furniture company Eikund is re-launching Norwegian furniture classics that will most definately impress.
With the presentation Veng, designed by Torbjom Bekken in 1960, Eikund is entering a chapter in the Norwegian design history that has been hidden for too long.
The scope of creativity blooming in this country around the mid twentieth century is for many an unknown territory. Pulled out into the spotlight again. there is no doubt that these objects fit perfectly into contemporary interiors of today, both in public and private sector.
