Description

ENGLISH

Storebrand is committed to sustainability, and with this project we wanted to address the most important challenges in the real estate industry, the over-consumption of material resources. The furniture is our own design together with Circular ways. The material is, from the ground up, old scaffold slings that have been cut out and set high.

It is therefore the idea, design and production made by the people that is part of the staff of Circular Ways. Young and adult, who need a flexible workplace. Circular ways give them this opportunity and Storebrand is happy to be part of this.
