The furniture industry is undergoing a restructuring period. The importance of cooperation along the production cycle is essential in order to reduce costs and increase value. The project objective is to work in the development of new Eco-designed products in the furniture industry and on the development of new technologies taking into account two complementary aspects: the Design and the ecology.


The eco-design, eco-conception, eco design, sustainable design and responsible design are terms that define the desire to build products that respect the principles of sustainable development.  


Eco-design is a rewarding process that consists on taking account environmental issues at all stages of the life cycle of a product: designing, production, distribution, use and lifetime optimization.
