In the course of our regular activities, the workshop generates unused sheet panels. We believe that the ideal ecological piece of designer furniture is one that involves as little transportation as possible. For this reason, the furniture in LA COLLECTION SINGULIÈRE is designed to optimize the internal management of our material and generate an internal circular economy.
One piece of SINGULIÈRE designer furniture is designed to fit in a single 4′ x 8′ sheet to minimize waste. Scraps produced from one model are then used to build another model. Or two pieces of furniture are made from a single wood panel. Once this is no longer possible, we order new materials. The colours and essences of LA COLLECTION SINGULIÈRE may therefore vary, depending on the production underway at MATPEL.
Examples of this design constraint abound on the internet (see here), but these pieces sometimes lack refinement. We are quite proud of our outcomes, which stand out for their skilled craftsmanship rather than DIY-style.
IN KEEPING WITH OUR VALUES
LA COLLECTION SINGULIÈRE is in line with our philosophy of sustainable development: salvage, eco-design, employee participation, and healthy products. It’s all there. This integrated approach allows us to offer these products at prices lower than MATPEL’s usual production while maintaining our high-quality standards.
