SAFE ENOUGH TO EAT

BUILD is made from ARPRO (Expanded Polypropylene), a high performance plastic foam which contains 95% air. It is completely toxic-free, emission free, allergy friendly and actually safe enough to eat!

100% RECYCLABLE

No trees are cut to make BUILD. When BUILD is moulded, there is actually a positive impact because recycled CO2 is utilized.
BUILD is 100% recyclable and the units can be replaced individually which means that you do not have to throw away an entire piece of furniture again. Good for the environment and good for your wallet.

CRADLE TO CRADLE

BUILD is entirely made from a single raw material (polypropylene). No glue, no metal, no unhealthy materials.  This means that at the end of its useful life you can simply place it in the recycle bin.

Please be responsible and recylce it properly. By properly sorting and recycling your plastics, you are helping to save approximately 88% of the energy required to produce plastic from the raw materials of oil and gas.
                                                                  



BUILD will be manufactured according to strict ecological and socially-responsible production methods.

We need your help to bring BUILD to life. We need a thousand people who raise their hand and help us make things better. Make BUILD your next piece of furniture and share it with your friends.

Choose your favorite perk and help us fund the tooling. Together we can change the rules of the game. Thank you for believing in us and in BUILD - we will deliver what we promise!

SAME SAME ...

Is there a reason why shelving has to be boring and static?
Is there a reason why designer shelving should not be affordable?
Is there a reason why everyone's house or office should look the same?
We don't think so!

BADLY-MADE RUBBISH

Most of the furniture you buy these days is deliberately designed to fall apart. Depending on its quality, some furniture does stick around for a while, but a large amount of it is built cheaply to be landfilled after just a couple of years of use. The industry wants you to buy more new stuff.
Bad for the environment and bad for your wallet!

THE MOST TOXIC THING IN YOUR HOUSE IS …

probably your furniture. Shelving is usually made from pressed wood like plywood, MDF, particleboard, or fibreboard. What you probably don't know, is that pressed wood contains high levels of formaldehyde; a highly toxic substance which evaporates over years and causes cancer.

TOXIC RUBBISH?  WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT!
THE BAD NEWS END HERE AND THE GOOD NEWS START WITH 'BUILD'.
