Gallery: FORM3 Sustainable Furniture Design


Northern California-based form3 design is a great example of beautiful furniture that is enhanced, not hindered, by the use of sustainable materials. Their clean-lined and well-crafted pieces exhibit mid-century-inspired aesthetics, seamlessly integrated with eco-friendly and discarded waste materials. Their line of office furniture, like the chair and side table shown above, are one-of-a-kind pieces constructed with byproduct materials from local manufacturers.

    The Form3 website would benefit from updating to include the discussion and comments on the InHabitat website offered by designer Chris Nardone. Interested in the furntiure lines, I went to Form3 website, and found absolutely no mention of construction waste for any of the furniture lines. Instead, there was plenty of “european” birch veneer ply, baltic birch, and plenty of species such as jatoba, mahogany, walnut, etc.

    Additionally, on the website, the nav headers at the bottom of the page include “Design + Architecture.” If I read correctly, neither of the partners are architects. Unless licensed architects, they should change that claim.

    That’s a nice find…thanks. There’s so much construction waste, so it’s good to hear that some of it is being put to use.
