Kristalia strives to minimise the environmental impact of all its activities, from production processes to services. In addition, the company prefers to use renewable materials such as wood or recyclable materials such as glass, steel, polypropylene and aluminium. The latter can be 100% recycled, over and over again, and maintains its qualities of lightness and resistance. Kristalia uses primary aluminium to ensure the maximum quality and durability of its end products.
It is important to be able to recycle most of the materials used to make Kristalia products, but it is not the only significant factor. The quality of a design project and its implementation is just as important from an eco-friendly point of view. Tables, chairs, bookcases and all other Kristalia furnishing elements and accessories are designed and made to be longlasting and resistant to physical and environmental stress, even extreme. A well-constructed piece of furniture, which does not break and stays new for a long time, can be used throughout our entire life, and perhaps even by our children and grandchildren. This means lower consumption of raw materials and energy resources to produce new furniture, less pollution during transport, less waste to take to the disposal centre and much more satisfaction for those who purchase a Kristalia product.
To achieve this result, Kristalia complies with stringent standards, which are also applied to the selection of materials and semi-finished products. The latter are always made in Italy by companies that apply the same quality and eco-friendly criteria. All Kristalia products are tested by CATAS, the leading Italian research institute in the wood and furniture sector, which certifies mechanical resistance, fire resistance, safety and health on an international scale, always achieving excellent results.
The furniture is also tested in the research and development department at the Kristalia factory. Here, new technologies and raw materials are continuously experimented in order to fully extend the life cycle of products, also using solutions derived from different sectors to furnishing: such as the non-scratch flocked surface inside the trays of the extensible tables, a technique borrowed from the car industry. Kristalia does not neglect any detail in order to improve its products: by doing so, the company increasingly helps nature.
