Commitment to sustainability

We believe that the most sustainable product is a product that can withstand the test of time, aesthetically and functionally. We work with responsibly sourced, honest materials and strive for a zero waste policy in our production.


Local production and logistics

Over 90% of the NORR11 collection is manufactured with European suppliers that strictly adhere to EU environmental standards and industry certifications.

We work with highly experienced local manufacturers and suppliers throughout the supply chain to ensure our products are of the highest quality, meeting and exceeding environmental standards.

We are committed to reducing unnecessary freight between production facilities and warehouses and where possible we will deliver direct from our manufacturers to the customer thereby reducing our product’s carbon footprint.

Our warehouse is strategically located on the outskirts of Berlin, near our production and logistics partners and close to our key European markets.

Designed for life

Our mission is to create the classics of tomorrow. We place equal emphasis on aesthetics and functionality to ensure our products can be passed from one generation to the next.


While designed to bring personality and character to any interior space our key products are all tested for extreme contract usage. We pride ourselves on having one of the lowest claim rates in the industry, less than 1%. We strive for continuous improvement and our goal is that a used NORR11 product will become even more valuable than a new piece of furniture.

Materials

Natural materials such as wood, leather, bamboo, rattan, metal and marble form the body of our collection. We work with honest quality materials that are sourced responsibly. All our wood is FSC certified and sourced within the EU.
We only use water-based lacquer on our wooden products. Using water-based lacquers instead of standard lacquers reduces the emission of harmful substances significantly, improving indoor and external climates while making for better working conditions in the production phase.

To minimise waste, we reuse shapes, moulds and reappropriate by-products of the production line when possible. For example, offcuts from some of our lounge chairs are used to form the armrests for dining chairs and leftover leathers are used for bar stool upholstery. All leftover wood that can’t be used for new production is used to heat the factories.


We only work with high quality, durable fabrics and leathers that can withstand heavy usage. The leather hides we use are natural – a byproduct of another industry. These hides are produced in strict compliance with international standards set forth for animal welfare and hygiene. 90% of the leathers we sell are European and carry the Nordic Swan Eco label.
