SUSTAINABILITY

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

You can always recognise furniture from SOFTLINE by the innovative design, the exquisite materials and the high quality craftsmanship. It’s furniture that is deeply rooted in the design tradition of the brand, dating back to 1979, but still speaking the language of the future. When we design a piece of furniture it’s always inspired by the global design trends that we interpret in collaboration with leading international designers.

INNOVATION

With an ever-present focus on creative development, the core purpose of SOFTLINE is to be a leading provider of innovative, functional design furniture and design concepts for public spaces and domestic interiors worldwide.

MATERIALS

Local sourcing of materials is an essential philosophy at SOFTLINE. The majority of the materials and components are sourced from established manufacturers in Europe – ensuring traceability, high quality and the lowest possible environmental impact.

RECYCLING

The majority of the SOFTLINE furniture has removable covers that allow for easy cleaning or changing. New covers and spare parts can be bought to prolong the life of the furniture, minimizing the environmental impact over time. When the lifecycle of the furniture is complete, the simple disassembly process makes it easy to recycle the individual materials and to give them new life.

CERTIFICATIONS

Many SOFTLINE components and furniture are certified according to several internationally renowned standards – as well as meeting country-specific legal requirements. You can always request a report for your market.
