It’s important to us to produce furniture that’s mindful of the environment throughout its life cycle. That’s why we design every product with longevity in mind. We manufacture our products with components that are easy to replace in the field if and when there’s wear and tear to fix or aesthetic updates to make. Components are recyclable whenever possible. And when a product’s life cycle does come to an end, we make sure they’re simple to disassemble for recycling.
KI provides disassembly instructions to make it simple for our customers to recycle materials at the end of a product’s life cycle.
KI provides assistance in the removal, repurposing, resale or recycling of used or unneeded products. We can also assist with brokering furniture from other manufacturers.
KI holds certifications that apply stringent standards to our products, to ensure that we’re building low-emission products that improve indoor air quality and aid customers in creating healthy and sustainable spaces.
