Sustainable furniture

Punkalive design company strives to achieve a recognition for its environmentally friendly furniture. Made solely from a  laminated veneer lumber called Kerto wood, which is made from Finnish Spruce, the furniture’s design and production methods emphasise the principles of ecology and sustainability. The wood is sourced from within a 100km radius of the Punkaharju factory where the furniture is manufactured and the sawdust from furniture component production is reused. The local power company transmits the heat from the production mill to the town’s heating system, which provides substantial energy savings for the local community.
