Through critical questioning
and accurate analysis,
we strive for a better future
Ecological awareness determines
holistic, sustainable action
For over 30 years, ZEITRAUM has stood for ecology and sustainability, which can be felt in the products. ZEITRAUM offers products that are manufactured in an environmentally friendly manner from the very beginning and treated with due respect. Therefore, we continuously check, question and revise the quality of our production in order to remain true to our claim. By constantly questioning all process and production levels, being in constant exchange with our production partners and planning innovatively, we are able to think and act ecologically.
We have already met these targets by 2023:
In 2022, 40 % of chairs were already packaged plastic-free. Our goal is to switch completely to recycled packaging material.
Since 2022, there has been a traffic light system for the Furniture Footprint. The colours indicate the score achieved in the sustainability assessment.
Shared values connect us with our long-standing production partners and suppliers. In 2021, we laid these down in a Code of Conduct.
Valuing and preserving things
In 2022, we started to build up a network of repair shops.
We found our first partners in Berlin, Heidelberg and Hamburg.
In 2021, we were able to almost double our donations in cash and in kind to social institutions compared to the previous year.
“When people ask me what
imagination means to me,
I respond: imagination is the
search for a better world.”
much to do
We will need foresight and prudence to cope with the inevitable upheavals and changes in our lives in the years to come.
Where are our roots? Where do we feel at home? How do we want to live? At ZEITRAUM we think about these questions and are guided by our desires for a better world.
These are the goals we set for the future:
In 2023 we already package over 80% of our chairs in cardboard-only packaging. By the end of the year, we want to pack all chairs plastic-free.
Reusable recycled fleece
So far, we have packed tables and beds in foam sheets. By 2025, this material will be completely replaced with a recycled fleece from Bavaria.
A strong network
By the end of 2023, we will expand our network of repair partner workshops by 8 businesses. In this way, we are making an active contribution to the circular economy.
