Sustainability, sustainable design and circular design with a clear objective: respect for the environment.
Teorema bases its founding principles on sustainability, sustainable design and circular design. A new look that has the respect for the environment as its main objective. This great objective is worked from the product design process taking into account the proximity of suppliers involved in the production process, the packaging used in the packaging, extending the life cycle of the products we design with top quality materials with green certifications and the use of textiles with natural and 100% recyclable fabrics. All these contributions create long-lasting products that promote sustainability and foster a culture of consuming what is necessary to create a more sustainable society.
Teorema is a family company that after three generations and 60 years of experience in the sector has its production in the outskirts of the city of Valencia. By avoiding unnecessary transportation between our suppliers, we avoid having a negative impact on the environment. A starting point that has not changed and that we want to enhance by polishing the most harmful aspects until we eliminate as much of our carbon footprint as possible. With these bases and constant work, we will be able to contribute our grain of sand to become part of a respectful and sustainable society in the long term.
SUSTAINABILITY AND SUSTAINABLE DESIGN
The industrial design process is fundamental to creating a sustainable product design. The constant search between the designer and the manufacturer for innovative components and materials to assemble a product is essential to ensure that the life cycle of a product is extended over time. Looking to the long term for the possible replacement of specific parts whatever the material to be replaced and the subsequent recycling of all parts independently considerably minimizes the environmental impact. Research, development and innovation are key in the quest for sustainability.
100% FORMALDEHYDE-FREE WOOD WITH FSC AND PEFC CERTIFICATES
Raw materials such as wood are essential to obtain a good product. Teorema uses natural walnut and oak wood and all the components used in its production system are 100% formaldehyde-free, in compliance with European regulations. Likewise, the wood is certified with recognized seals such as FCS or PEFC, coming from such sustainable and controlled in Europe. Quality over quantity under the need and responsibility of not wasting natural resources.
FABRICS - EU ECOLABEL
Textiles are a fundamental part of the thinking about sustainable design. For this reason, it is important that products are upholstered with fabrics from the world’s most prestigious producers and a selection of the most natural and pure textiles with sustainability labels such as the EU Ecolabel is made. This label is part of the European Union’s strategy of transition to a circular economy, with the reuse of materials with less waste and less polluting emissions, and a more rational use of energy, water and materials. Reinforcing this philosophy, it is important to offer the possibility of upholstering products with 100% recycled fabrics.
SUSTAINABILITY AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Sustainability is development that meets all the needs of the present without compromising the capacity of future generations by ensuring a balance between economic growth, environmental care and social well-being. All these concepts, so easy to write and so difficult to fulfill, are part of values that have to be worked hard to be put into practice. At Teorema we accept this enormous challenge with the intention of taking small but firm steps in search of possible solutions to the problems derived from industrial and production processes in order to create a more balanced world by promoting sustainable development.
