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 encapsulate 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, is a taste of this thoughtful, hybrid generation of design contributing to a more sustainable world.
