Sustainable design in shopfitting? In a fast-moving world that has to reinvent itself season after season, this sounds contradictory. Nevertheless, architects and shopfitting planners are urged to take the aspect of sustainability into account. To what extent are wood-based materials such as melamine-faced particleboard sustainable? What role do recycled materials and the circular economy play? How can the look and feel create a “wow experience” for customers and which designs are designed to last?
Markus David, Sales & Specification Manager of wood-based materials manufacturer Sonae Arauco, answers these questions, accompanied by international case studies of the decorative brand Innovus.
