Why is it sustainable?
Block is a side table made entirely with waste materials.
The wood legs are made with offcuts from local manufacturers that use FSC-certified plywood. Their design allows them to nest inside each other during cutting, thus minimizing manufacturing waste.
The tops are made of SilicaStone, a material that combines recycled glass and porcelain.
All these materials are sourced within 320km from the studio (UK) and come from both post-industrial and post-consumer waste.
All Alusid products are handmade and made-to-order, thus eliminating the cost and impact of eventual unsold stock.
