Wehlers is a sustainable design furniture brand for the conscious consumer who refuses to compromise on design and quality.
Our philosophy is simple; we don’t think the world needs more designed furniture – however, we do think that it needs more options for conscious consumption.
The furniture we design is all made with recycled or sustainable sourced materials and circular economy is an important part of our design solution. We insist that our furniture is repaired, reused and recycled during and after “end of life cycle”.
Wehlers adds to the Danish design tradition in which honesty is seen in the material, and form is defined from Scandinavian minimalism and function.
Our design is a natural and new extension to comprehensive architecture because of the design and sustainability combination.
Our goal is to make design matter and reducing our environmental footprint in the making, therefore we design furniture that will both stand the test of time and inspire the consumer to cherish and savour them.
Wehlers has been using ocean plastic in our furniture for a long time and we can now proudly present R.U.M., short for ‘Re-Used Materials’, a chair made entirely from ocean plastic and recycled steel.
In collaboration with CF Møller Design, Wehlers has designed and developed R.U.M. where we up-cycle fishing nets into a design chair.
We first started using upcycled ocean plastic to create the small leg caps of our dinning chair ALTERNATIVE and now we are proud to be using the ocean plastic in large scale as the seat and back of our chair R.U.M.
Wehlers has designed an intelligent ECO-system. It means that Wehlers helps its designers, suppliers & customers to become more sustainable.
Wehlers believes in the circular principles. We are convinced that well designed, sustainable products are the starting point for a sustainable interior.
Wehlers closes material loops and take its responsibility when it comes to utilizing materials.
Wehlers furniture collection is designed in such a way that they can be reused at any point in the future – design with the end in mind.
All of our furniture has a high content of reused materials. If we do require new materials for a product, we use as many renewable and local materials as we can find.
Today’s linear “take, make, dispose” model relies on large quantities of cheap, easily accessible materials and energy, and it is a model that has reached its physical limits. We insist that our furniture is not only made of recycled and sustainable materials, but it is repaired, reused and recycled during and after “end-of-life-cycle”.
We are on a mission to change the furniture industry for good because our place in history depends on the choices we make.
