Experience the Beauty of Sustainable Timeless Design

The concept of the ‘natural workspace’ has been a touchstone for Taiga from its earliest beginnings. As we draw our inspiration from Nature, our duty is also to respect it. We do this by designing sustainable products that are meant to last, and can be repurposed multiple times. Sustainability and eco-consciousness drive our day-to-day decisions, from product development through to end customer.

Life Cycle

Analysis

We have conducted a Life Cycle Analysis, which gives us reasons to be proud and ambitious. The numbers indicate that we are among the industry leaders in product sustainability. Though we are pleased to see our commitment to nature reflected in our numbers, we know that there is always room to improve. 

Timeless Design Philosophy

For us, timeless design encapsulates a philosophy rooted in Scandinavian simplicity and a deep connection to nature. It embodies enduring elegance, functionality that transcends trends and remains relevant across time. 

1. Respect for nature 
2. Minimalist design
3. High-quality materials and craftsmanship
4. Circularity 
5. Purposeful Innovation

Certified Materials, Responsible Sourcing

The journey towards creating a natural workspace continues with careful material selection. Taiga is committed to using the highest percentage of organic materials, maximising the use of wood, and minimizing metals. All of our wooden elements are sourced from FSC-certified suppliers, meaning you can trust that our products are created without compromising the environment. Our philosophy of stewardship extends to all of our materials, including our carpet (made from 100% recycled nylon) and our upholstery fabric, which is made from 98% postconsumer recycled polyester. We ensure that the materials we utilize are safe and sustainable, backed by the appropriate certification to demonstrate their quality and safety standards

Manufacturing 100% Renewable Energy

Taiga workspaces are manufactured in Northern Europe. By choosing environmentally conscious partners, we have been able to significantly reduce the impact of our production on the environment.

 

 We have chosen our main manufacturer based on our shared approach and values when it comes to the environment. They exclusively purchase their electricity from solar farms, ensuring it is sourced from renewable sources. This results in a very low impact on our carbon footprint. To account for possible fluctuations in solar availability and back-up requirements, our consultants have created the LCA with renewables accounting for 90%. Even with this 10% of energy coming from the generic grid, the carbon footprint from our manufacturing process remains low

Localized Supply Chain

We closely monitor the length of our supply chain and strive to keep our supply chain as short as possible, focusing on suppliers in close proximity of our main manufacturer. The distances in our supply chain are kept as short as possible – from the sourcing of raw materials to shipping the products to our clients. 

1. Design & Sourcing

Taiga workspaces are designed in Finland. Materials are carefully chosen and sourced with respect to our design philosophy to create timeless and sustainable products that are meant to last.

Taiga chooses partners that share these values, and has controlled contracts for all main materials.

2. Manufacturing

Taiga’s workspaces are made to order, and with localised production in the EU and Asia. Deliveries of the sourced materials are controlled by Taiga to the contract manufacturer. With ample production capacity from partners – Taiga is able to plan large or customized projects well in advance.

3. Distribution

Our distribution strategy is closely integrated with our localized production principle. We always look for the most sustainable solution to deliver from the closest factory. All components are gathered at one of our manufacturers /or our APAC / NA hub – and shipped to the client.

4. Use

Products are assembled on location by Taiga-trained specialists. The workspaces are designed to last and are covered by comprehensive after-sales support. Electric components have a warranty of 2 years, and other elements 5 years. 

5. Reuse & Recycle

We design workspace solutions that have a long life span. Taiga products can be reused and reassembled multiple times. Wearing parts can easily be replaced.

The flexibility inherent to Taiga’s modular workspaces not only fosters adaptability but also contributes to a sustainable approach to office design. By facilitating the reuse and reconfiguration of furniture components, we can reduce the need for traditional renovation, and promote a more circular approach. Taiga products are assembled on location by Taiga-trained specialists. Workspaces have a long life span, excpected to be more than 15 years.

Products are covered by warranty, and comprehensive after-sales support – and we are constantly assessing and developing processess to extend the life of our products. 

Reuse & Recycle – Extending the Life of Our Workspaces

Modular by design, Taiga workspaces are moveable and repairable. Many moving parts are easy to replace – extending the life of our products. Timeless design and carefully considered functionalities further ensures the usability of our products far in to the future – providing a platform for unique needs and rapidly developing technology. 

Taiga workspaces don’t just have one life, but they can serve various purposes and spaces during their life time. We are experienced in relocating products from one place to another, and  together with our partnership network, we aim to ensure that our workspaces find a new place in case of a relocation.

Used workspaces hold their value, and are sometimes sold on secondary markets. While developing our maintenance services, we are also experimenting with rental models to better accomodate a circular approach.
