Sustainability and manufacturing
Elmroot & Mahogany
Wood is renewable, reusable and bio- degradable. Svenskt Tenn has worked with wood since the 1930s and the material is also one of the most dominant in the company’s production today. But for wood to be a really good material from an environmental point of view, it should come from responsibly managed forests.
All of Svenskt Tenn’s furniture suppliers and their wood suppliers are subject to the EU’s Timber Regulation, which has strict rules for the wood trade. This is to deal with the global problem of illegal logging and to counter trafficking in illegal timber and wooden goods within the EU.
Röthlisberger was founded in 1928 as a small carpentry workshop in Gümligen, Switzerland. Today, it is much more than that: an interior supplier with its own engineering department and a high-quality cabinetmaker specialised in designer furniture. Here, they manufacture design classics that require great artisanry, including Josef Frank's Table 2126.
