At via seating, we understand that great chairs are consciously built. This is at the forefront of our minds from the design phase to a chair’s end of life. Throughout the chair production process, we are consistently reducing green house gas emissions, reducing water use and reducing solid waste. We use materials that are environmentally-friendly and safe for use. Our result is safe and sustainable, great chairs.
-limited water usage–
Water is a precious commodity for everyone, especially in the high desert valley surrounding Sparks, Nevada – our home base. With this in mind, we figured out how to eliminate all H2O beyond the measured amount we use to steam wrinkles out of the final, upholstered product. Every. Drop. Counts
–safe product usage–
We at via seating are committed to using products that are safe for the environment as well as the individuals who use them. As a standard practice in our dFe program, we work consistently to identify hazardous chemicals and eliminate them from our products.
hazardous chemicals we do not use in via seating products include:
PBDE fire retardants
-use of recyclable materials-
We intentionally use products, which are highly recyclable in nature. This includes aluminum, steel, polyurethane and nylon. This also includes our shipping materials: corrugated cardboard and a polyethylene bag.
-testing & certification-
99% of via seating Product is BIFMA LEVEL® 2 certified by Intertek, an independent testing laboratory. The only exception is ReGOLA panels, which are BIFMA LEVEL® 1 certified by Intertek.
