my world, our earth (our planet)

Inspired by innovation, we are passionate about problem-solving design. And true to our belief that all design should be defined by both purpose and pleasure, we have a new challenge: to use sustainable design to restore and preserve the beauty of our natural environment.

How? By researching, optimizing and minimizing every aspect of our processes.
In line with the 2021 vision – we are currently being certified according to ISO 14001 company – we’ve made eco-friendly design more than a best practice goal: it is the driving force behind every aspect of our production.

  • reinventing

  • reusing

Starting with the installation of solar energy panels in Manzano in 2012 and the continual optimization of our processes and packaging to minimize energy use and waste, we are determined to make a difference. And when it comes to find creative solutions that make our world a better place to live in, we continue to experiment, reinventing recyclable materials, using renewable sources and sustainably FSC certified wood to ensure even our most iconic designs adapt to the needs of the world.
