Leading Canadian furniture company Gus* Modern is constantly inspired by simple forms and honest materials, however it is their commitment to sustainability and environmentally friendly practices that makes GlobeWest proud to be their exclusive stockist in Australia.
The range boasts innovative designs and modern sofas that showcase a revolutionary new synthetic-down fill material, made entirely from recycled PET plastic water bottles. This initiative means that over 600,000 plastic bottles per year are prevented from entering landfill.
You heard it right: a couch filled with recycled plastic bottles.
“We’re pleased to integrate a new, environmentally friendly fill into our upholstery manufacturing,” said David Podsiadlo, Lead Designer at Gus* Design Group. “We expect to prevent more than half a million plastic bottles from entering landfills this year. Not only are we committed to offering modern, timeless design, but to do so using sustainable resources and processes.”
Gus* is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and manufactures all upholstered sofas, sectionals, and chair frames with 100% FSC©-certified hardwood, in support of responsible forest management.
The PET filling has been incorporated into desirable styles such as Gus* Margot Sofa / Gus* Bloor Sofa / Flip Sofa Bed all forming part of Gus’s latest & current catalogue (US Spring 2016).
Gus* Modern, already renowned for their 100% FSC sofa frames has extended their commitment to sustainable manufacturing, substituting feathers for PET in their cushioning. The PET fill in not only sustainable and environmentally friendly yet another benefit is that is also makes the sofas incredibly luxurious and comfortable.
