Visuality as an aspect of sustainability

”Don’t make waste” is the most important trend 2020. And the Scandi brands are good at taking care of and developing what they’ve already got. One example is Dinesen – a family-owned company in Denmark, founded in 1898. With their ”passion for wood and respect for nature” Dinesen do not only manufacture beautiful flooring, but also work with visuality as an important part of sustainability. A few weeks ago Hans Peter Dinesen (5th generation Dinesen) and Mikkel Vestergaard (design and material developer) launched Dinesen Collection. A series of furniture and interior objects designed to activate your senses through aesthetic sustainability. The heartbeat of the collection is to ”draw nature’s calm presence in and spark curiosity about wood as a material”. Take a look!
