Evohide™ Mistral leads the way in sustainable surface solutions. Formulated with phthalate-free, bio-attributed PVC resins (originating from agricultural and forestry biomass) and bio-based plasticizers derived from Europe & USA-sourced soya bean oil, this durable vegan leather features a 100% recycled polyester backing made from used plastic water bottles.
The combination of these ISCC & RSB certified renewable ingredients makes for a 75% sustainable content coated fabric, suitable for all indoor and outdoor upholstery applications.
Mistral is named after the strong, “masterly” (in Occitan) wind that plays an important role in the Mediterranean region’s climate.
In addition to the Mistral stock range, the appearance and properties of Evohide™ can be tailored to meet designers’ expectations, from plain leather-look surfaces to textile-inspired grains, always achieving an excellent haptic.
EvoHide can also be laminated on high recycled content multi-knit substrates to offer greener wall & headliner options featured in our new MorPH added-value collection.
At Kvadrat Really, we upcycle end-of-life textiles into premium-quality engineered materials suitable for industrial-scale projects: Solid Textile Board and Acoustic Textile Felt. Designers and architects use these to create beautiful furniture and interiors, challenge conventions and inspire collaborations.
Produced on-site in Denmark, our materials underline that the notion of ‘waste’ is, in itself, a waste. Cutting-edge, they revitalise end-of-life textiles into a viable material, which can be recycled again and again.
Solid Textile Board and Acoustic Textile Felt show that circular design exists beyond ambition and is a powerful reality today. They provide an elegant solution to a pressing problem: currently, only 25% of the 95% of textiles that can be recycled actually are.
Critically, it’s not just our materials themselves that challenge conventional thinking; it’s also the process of working with them. As they act as a creative palette, exploring their use inevitably reveals opportunities for circular collaboration and design.
These sparks of insight provoke our partners to re-consider the relationship they have with resources and suppliers. The new thinking this brings goes towards reshaping the spaces where we lead our lives, from boutiques to offices.
As a result, the momentum towards a more circular world gathers pace. And we get ever closer to our goal of a completely waste-free solution.
Breathable upholstery material thanks to laif technology and sustainable thanks to 65% natural and recycled raw materials:
For the new skai® VyP Coffee with laif technology, spent coffee grounds are reused for the first time as a raw material to produce breathable upholstery fabrics. The authentic look and soft feel, together with the consistent use of sustainable ingredients and the resource-saving, energy-efficient manufacturing process in Germany, contribute to a complete picture of a sustainable product. Thanks to laif technology, it is breathable and therefore ideal for long periods of sitting.
The authentic look and soft feel with the consistent use of sustainable raw materials and the resource-saving, energy-efficient manufacturing process In Germany using green energy contribute to the complete picture of a sustainable product.
By using coffee grounds, waste is avoided and no greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide are produced.
Cristallux produces its own zero waste alternative material completely in-house, called Alamar. Any waste or cut-offs are being re-integrated in the next production cycle. Alamar is based on a 100% recyclable thermoplastic resin. With its various customizable optics in marble stone finishes, alabaster and glass, it requires 5 times less energy usage when compared with processing real glass or stone, without compromising the look and feel. On top of that Alamar is extremely durable and much lighter in weight.
