Ditre Italia is pleased to announce that the exclusive Sanders Universe sofa, signed by Tiziano Guardini (designed by Stefano Spessotto) has been selected as a winner of the Archiproducts Design Awards 2021 – Sustainability Special Mention – in the Furniture category.
More than 750 products have been carefully evaluated and then selected to compete for the award by a prestigious jury composed of architects, journalists, photographers and creative directors from all over the world.
Now in its sixth edition, this year the Archiproducts Design Awards present a special innovation: the Sustainability Special Mention, a recognition conceived for all products that adhere to a logic based on the circular economy concept. An outstanding jury of experts in eco-design and sustainability awarded the brands committed to minimizing pollutant emissions and the impact of the product during its entire life cycle, encouraging the use of sustainable and recyclable materials.
The first green project of Ditre Italia has been made by the precious collaboration with the fashion designer Tiziano Guardini, a consummate creator of eco-sustainable fashion collections, who, throughout his career has always sought to mantain the balance between man and nature.
It is also the symbol of Ditre Italia Greenwear Philosophy – born from the wider Greenbow project of the Calligaris Group – which is committed to contributing to the health of the planet through a sustainable development process in line with UN 2030 Agenda.
Created by reinterpreting the iconic Sanders Air model, this product is distinguished by a green structure; the upholstering made of eco-sustainable fabrics and the particular animal free and eco-sustainable wadding, as an alternative to goose down.
The whole structure and the base are made of metal partly obtained from recycled ferrous materials; the seat suspension system consists of slats made from recycled glass fibre and recycled PET. For the cushioning, instead of the classic foam rubber, were used natural latex and coconut fibre bonded together with natural rubber adhesives.
The sofa is therefore completely made of recycled and/or natural materials.
Sanders Universe, the 100% sustainable sofa, can be configured in four different compositions inspired by the nature essential elements: earth, fire, air and water, each one distinguished by a colour palette that recalls the element to which it is connected.
The eco-sustainable product, characterized by the linings that recall the universe of planets and by the possibility of disassembly and recovery each component at the end of the life cycle, represents a real innovation in the company product range.
Ditre Italia, thanks to this prestigious award received by Archiproducts, stands out not only as an excellence of international design, but confirms its commitment to sustainability and its increasing attention to environmental respect and well-being of the person.
