Sustainble furniture and building materials – presented by InteriorPark, platform for sustainable architectural design
When did you last mess about in mud? Is that much too long ago? The contact demonstrably has a positive effect on our wellbeing. So it’s all the better that the Claytec Company from Viersen has devoted itself to this topic since the 1980s and has ever since built with the oldest material of mankind, has finished walls with clay plaster and floors with clay terrazzo. In the historic ambience of an old brickyard, modern building materials are produced today, which are sustainable in the original sense.
I don’t know of anyone who does not like penguins. A similar thing happens with the chair of the same name, the elegant design classic “Pinguin“, which was designed in the 1950s and is now, after its rediscovery, produced by the generation of grandchildren and greatgrandchildren of the then manufacturer: its timeless, appealing design makes it a versatile favourite! It is preferably used in public buildings like museums or churches, and as “Pingulino” it cuts a fine figure in kindergartens and schools. But please do not feed it!
