‘Furniture Design for Sustainable Future’ was a collaboration between The Workshop Dubai and Zinjaar Vintage, presenting a new generation of contemporary design based on refurbished and upcycled antique and vintage furniture. By targeting a broad audience in closer proximity to their homes –effectively providing a more intimate and less intimidating atmosphere in which to explore sustainable design – via The Workshop’s Jumeirah location, ‘Furniture Design for Sustainable Future’, was rooted in accessibility, demonstrating that the global conversation about sustainability and design’s integral role can be participated in by all facets of society, no matter the scale.
Antique and vintage furniture has a carbon footprint 16 times lower than new manufactures. Preserving the future while upholding the past, the joint efforts of The Workshop and Zinjaar Vintage encapsulated an important and increasingly global ethos that while the future is green, it needn’t negate the beauty, heritage and traditions of the past – and Furniture Design for Sustainable Future, was a taste of this thoughtful, hybrid generation of design contributing to a more sustainable world.
