The foundation of EFG’s design philosophy is ‘Keep your darlings’, which means that our furniture is designed to last and be kept. Get to know Evo, which has a sustainable design with an innovative construction and material combination.
EFG uses as many recycled materials as possible and makes sure the material can be recycled when part or all of a piece of furniture needs to be replaced. Evo is manufactured using only three materials: wood, polyester and sprung steel, and all parts can be replaced or recycled separately. Wood is a renewable material, and Evo is manufactured using FSC®-certified* ash and oak, from responsibly produced forest.
The classic wooden frame provides a stable and sustainable chassis, while the stretched 3D knitted textile in the seat and back create a soft and comfortable surface to sit on. Because EFG aims for all of the synthetic materials it uses to be recyclable, 100% recyclable polyester is used in Evo.
The textile has been 3D knitted to make a single piece of fabric which is then attached to the chair. The precision knitting technique minimises waste by creating a fabric without seams or folds. And because it’s fully-fashioned, it can be replaced over time, giving Evo a longer lifetime.
