OUR

SUSTAINABILITY EFFORTS

We are dedicated to being sensible frontrunners on the environmental responsibility. If we provide timeless, lasting and functional quality designs, we know nature will prevail, as will UMAGE.

GIVING BACK TO NATURE

We acknowledge that selling furniture and lighting can never be 100% sustainable, but we want to make an extra effort for the environment. We have made a collaboration with the NGOs One Tree Planted, so every time one of our designs made from wood is sold, we are planting a tree.


DURABLE QUALITY MATERIALS

We always choose quality materials to ensure prolonged lifecycles of our designs, so you can lead a sustainable lifestyle with care for the environment


INTERCHANGEABLE ELEMENTS

As the times change, the designs can change accordingly. Two years have passed, and suddenly you want leather on your dining chairs instead of velour, then simply interchange the velour with leather in a few minutes.

Same thing with our lounge chairs, cabinets, and other responsible designs. This means that you can add new life to the design and your interior without having to buy an entirely new furniture piece, saving the world resources.


MULTIFUNCTIONAL AND FLEXIBLE

Why have a table lamp or a side table and not include a USB or wireless charger as well? Why not make room for storage where the space is vacant anyway? UMAGE not only answers these questions but make it happen.

One of the key aspects of the furniture and lighting designs at UMAGE is multiple functions and flexibility. Designing with more than one function in mind is a sustainable mindset as it reduces the number of products you need to buy to get a complete setting for your space.


COMPACT AND REUSABLE PACKAGING

To minimise the packaging waste, we have devised a new packaging concept repurposing the packaging to be used as beautiful storage boxes afterwards, without any branding.

We are replacing all foam and plastic in our packaging with eco-friendly materials to minimise the plastic waste when purchasing an UMAGE design. This is being implemented continuously from January 2020.

RECYCLING

All designs can be separated into key elements for recycling, and worn parts can be replaced, to extend the life of the designs.


Responsible Down Standard

At UMAGE we ensure that all Goose Feathers used for our Eos feather lamp collection is 100% sustainably sourced from farmland to end-consumer. All feathers are licensed with an RDS certification ensuring the well-being of animals in our production.
