Index of materials

In a logic of production conscious and responsible, it seems to be to have to take a position subject of the materials, and thus favour a furniture made from healthy materials.
Eco-design is the consideration and the reduction, by design, of the impact of the environment through a management responsible for natural resources.

It is a preventive approach that is characterized by a global approach taking into account the entire life cycle of the object: from the extraction of raw materials until its elimination at the end of life and all criteria environmental (consumption of raw materials, water and energy, emissions to water and air, production of waste...).

The lifespan and recycling of our objects are programmed from conception to end of life. This approach is not new at the smarin designer Stéphanie Marin’s. Indeed, in 1990, her first project was in the recycling industry European textile industry and she designed her first production: a very important point of view forerunner in the fashion world.

Deepening the experience, smarin designs objects that best integrate with the environment.

Our expertise allows us to also to meet the standards and ERP fire classification, while guaranteeing the use of materialsand components not harmful to health and the environment. Glues, varnishes and processing treatments or usual finishes give way to the alternative components, free of chemical solvents. This positioning is all the more important since we know that regulatory standards and legislation evolves more slowly than research.

To date the elements at our disposal allow us to predict that toxic substances contained in the products of fireproofing are a danger for people and the environment. The are criticizes their disruptive effects endocrine, and their difficulty in degrade. The same is true for the production of hard plastic furniture or recycled producing nanoparticles that companies do not yet know manage.

The choice of material is very important: the smarin studio has a material library focused on materials research the healthiest. The material library is a place of inspiration and meeting to stimulate and concretize projects oriented towards the discovery of materials most appropriate.
