Rotpunkt, a designer and manufacturer of German Kitchen furniture, has stated that there is a need for creative furniture design that empowers independence and sustainability.
The company, which is able to pledge a zero-carbon footprint in 2020 by manufacturing 100% carbon neutral kitchens from 1st January, argued that eco-credentials are a growing concern to the modern homeowner as we move into 2020, and suggested that ethical consumerism is set to grow.
“As we move into a new decade, it is notable there is a greater need for creative furniture design that empowers independence and sustainability for the home and end user” says Matt Phillips, Head of UK Operations, Rotpunkt. “I predict this will challenge any preconceived notions about kitchen design to welcome highly progressive, eco-friendly kitchen schemes and a need to support broken-plan arrangements and more transformative lifestyles” he added.
“As we continue to tackle the debate on climate change, it is only right that we start to consider the provenance and environmental impact of products in our homes. The construction of your kitchen furniture is a great way to be more environmentally aware, as different materials can impact not only how your kitchen looks, but also its weight, cost and carbon footprint” says Phillips.
