Gallery: BKLYN SNEAK PEEK: Bamboo Furniture from Ecosystems


New sustainable furniture company EcoSystems creates cute, family-friendly furniture that is as thoughtful of the environment as it is to the owner. Starting with renewable materials, EcoSystems follows an earth-minded agenda from start to finish, including taking responsibility for their designs at end of its (first) lifecycle, by taking back and recycling their furniture when you are done with it. Did we mention this stuff is super cute and durable – coming in a variety of primary colors and innovation seating/table configurations? Ecosystems will be showing at BKLYN Designs this weekend, and you can be sure that Abigail and Jill will be stopping at this booth during Sunday’s Mother’s Day Green Design Walking Tour >

EcoSystems uses automated manufacturing and a near-zero waste strategy to optimize efficiency and material use. One sheet of bamboo plywood contains the pattern for two complete chairs, with little waste. Assembly is streamlined as the flat-packed chair components snap together without the use of additional tools. Best of all, when you’re ready to move on or upgrade, EcoSystems will pick-up their furniture to recycle or reuse the materials.

The Bamba chair, pictured above, comes in two different types of bamboo depending on whether you prefer light or dark wood. The hardware is made of 100% aluminum and the cushion and upholstery are made of natural talalay latex and natural COM fabrics that are biodegradable. If you’re interested in more communal seating that offers a variety of different combinations, EcoSystems has created the Tandem 1 that can be customized to suit the needs of your home or office.
