Humanscale places movement, collaboration and sustainability under the spotlight at this years' Clerkenwell Design Week

(lifePR) ( Nürnberg, )
Humanscale will be taking a refreshing approach to Clerkenwell Design Week this year that places movement and collaboration central to Humanscales’ participation.

Rather than purely using their own showroom, Humanscale will be ubiquitous throughout Clerkenwell demonstrating the compatibility and integral nature of its products at a number of touch points, including a number of partner showrooms, a stand dedicated to sustainability and the Perfect Desk at Design Fields, as well as welcoming visitors to its new showroom (by appointment only).

List of showrooms where Humanscale can be seen:
• Bisley
• By Bailey
• Bene
• Bolon
• Staverton

Sustainability and material transparency are topics that have always been central to Humanscale’s philosophy, and at the year’s CDW they will be more prominent than ever before.

Humanscale is leading across all industries in material transparency with more Health Product Declarations (HPDs) and Declare labels than any other company. The Declare standard launched in 2012 and sets a new high standard for all manufacturers. From 13th June 2019 HPDs will be recognised in Europe.

To date, 60% of Declare labels and 54% of HPDs in the entire industry are published by Humanscale. 57% of Humanscale products carry Declare labels and HPDs. These labels represent Humanscale’s commitment to avoiding red-list materials and chemicals of concern, many of which are common in the furniture industry, including Formaldehyde, PVC, Chrome 6, PFC stain-resistant coatings and HFR flame retardants.

The recent appointment of Jane Abernethy to the role of Chief Sustainability Officer is a reflection of the company’s long-term commitment to sustainability, going beyond compliance to make positive impacts on the environment.

During the week Humanscale is honoured to be joined by Jo Ruxton for a series of VIP presentations in Humanscale’s showroom. Jo is a passionate campaigner for the oceans; she started the first marine programme for WWF in Hong Kong and was a key advocate for the establishment of the first marine parks there.

Jo was a lead member of the BBC’s diving team, involved in the production and direction of the underwater sequences for the much-admired first Blue Planet Series. However, Jo felt that the BBC neglected to tell the complete story, failing to discuss the issues of plastic waste in our oceans, so she began to work independently and produced the documentary feature, A Plastic Ocean. This award-winning film was released in 60 countries to critical acclaim, and importantly inspired the BBC to include the vital topic of plastic in Blue Planet 2, which in turn catalysed mainstream awareness of the issue and contributed to changes in government policy.

Jo co-founded the Plastic Oceans Foundation as a registered UK charity 10 years ago to help the fundraising process and to continue the legacy of the film through three main programmes, Science, Sustainability and Education.
