A carbon-neutral table made with natural materials and a removable, recycled plastic top.
Since 2010, award-winning furniture brand Another Country has been designing and making contemporary products that take inspiration not only from the British country style, but also from Shaker, Scandinavian, and Japanese design and woodworking traditions. The company is as passionate about sustainability as it is about producing timeless, high-quality furniture and home accessories. And that may be an understatement. Another Country leads the way in the industry as a carbon-neutral company that plants more trees than it uses. Furthermore, it uses only FSC or PEFC-certified wood and natural materials for upholstery.
The new Work Series Two Table follows the same recipe and aims to provide a green office furniture solution. Plus, the design is fresh and modern. It features organic forms, rounded edges and elegant curves as well as tactile materials. Crafted from sustainable Portuguese eucalyptus wood, which the company sources from an area close to the factory that produces the table, Work Series Two is a true carbon-neutral product. It also features non-formaldehyde-added glue along with plant-based finishes.
To complement the solid wood build, Another Country chose two other natural, sustainable materials: cork and wool. Both of them are used to make the table’s sound-absorbing privacy screen. Desk accessories along with cable management and power options enhance the functionality of the design further. The table also features a removable plastic top produced in a collaboration with Smile Plastics. Made from 100% recycled yogurt pots, the top has a terrazzo-like texture with specks of metallic accents from the pots’ foils. All of these materials are easy to recycle. Another Country will launch the new Work Series Two table, along with their Davenport Bureau, during Clerkenwell Design Week, as part of the British Collection. The event will take place in London from 24 to 26 May 2022. Photography© Another Country, Smile Plastics.
