MANY VISITORS AT OUR OPEN IDEAS SEMINARS
During this year’s Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair we arranged seminars at our stand with the theme OPEN IDEAS. The different seminars with themes like ergonomics, sustainability, design and future workspaces for offices, schools and healthcare attracted many visitors.

The starting point for the sustainability theme at the fair was our unique and comprehensive open source tool - THE BETTER EFFECT INDEX. A unique tool that evaluates the sustainability of products by means of a points system. The tool is designed on the basis of the areas that different customer groups have identified as being important in enabling them to make sustainable choices. Six different areas – raw materials and resources, pure materials, reuse, climate, social responsibility and ergonomics – are rated on a scale from 1 to 3. This creates a very clear picture of the product's sustainability advantages and what is missing to make it even better.
FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY
On Wednesday Johanna Ljunggren, Sustainability Manager at Kinnarps, participated as the representative of the furniture industry in the Wooden Furniture Association's (Trämöbelförbundet or TMF) panel debate on the topic ”How can the Swedish furniture industry contribute to saving the world?”.
