VESTRE AND NOTE DESIGN STUDIO REUSE – AND REINVENT
At Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2020, Vestre's stand was appointed ”Best Stand”. The stand and the exhibition designed by Note Design Studio, fully reflected Vestre's commitment to sustainability and all materials used in the stand had been carefully selected for easy recycling or reuse. And this is exactly what will happen in their exhibition 'Mixed Habitat' in Zona Tortona during Milan Design Week 2021.
Vestre not only attaches great importance to various sustainability initiatives – but also strives for authenticity and full transparency at all levels. At last year's Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair, the company had calculated the climate footprint for all furniture used in the stand – something that really impressed the jury. All materials used in the creation of the stand – such as hollow brick, pine plywood, stone, and double polycarbonate boards – could easily be reused and generate minimal waste as well. Therefore, the assignment given to Note Design Studio for the design of the exhibition for this year's Milan Design Week was crystal clear: reuse as much material as possible from last year's fair in Stockholm.
Vestre pieces exhibited include: The modular outdoor-seating system Plinth by Note Design Studio, the circular Stripes bench and planter; the colorful Pop collection, greens and planters; and the DOGA-award-winning Munch Collection of seating that Andreas Engesvik and Jonas Ravlo Stokke designed for the new Munch Museum that opened in Oslo last year. A preview of the new project Vestre Habitas designed by René Hougaard, Arde Design Studio and Alexander Qual, Rethink Studio will also be featured.
