Our aim is to produce products of worth that don't burden the Environment.
We are a modern design studio, working on a wide range of products and processes with accountability at our core. We strive hard to deliver intelligent design that is ecologically respectful and
appropriate to our time and place.
Tanti is an archaic word that means worthwhile, and that is what we're trying to be.
Our impact on the Environment
Human impact on our environment and our struggle to reduce carbon in our atmosphere, is a persistent burden on the collective consciousness. We want to deliver guilt-free designs that delight without compromise. We make informed considered decisions throughout the development journey, evaluating the environmental impact of each and every material and how they will be affected during the products life. So from start to finish we ask; Where did this material come from? What's the impact of selecting it? Can it be replaced or is there a better alternative? Can it be reused, recycled, or returned to nature? How much energy was used to manufacture the raw material in the first place?
We work hard to innovate process, taking inspiration from established practises of mass production before dissecting and reinventing them to offer something new and personal. We champion emerging green technologies, learn constantly and try our best. We can't promise to always be right, a truth one day is a fallacy the next in this ever-changing present, but we are trying to be good, delivering great design in an honest way.
Filling the Carbon Sink
European forests ability to sequester carbon are vital in removing Co2 from our atmosphere. Whilst Europe’s woodlands continue to increase in size their effect as a sink for new carbon is reducing. The main reason as sighted by the 2011 State of Europe’s Forest Report, is that much of the woodland planted 70-80 years ago has now entered a stage of its life where it no longer needs to absorb the vast quantities of carbon it once did. The report suggests it is time to concentrate more on continuous wood production again and rejuvenate forests again, so then you have growing forests and a continuous flow of wood products.
Through responsible consumption carbon sequestration can be increased. The more timber is used, the more trees will be planted and the more carbon will be locked up. More information can be found at: http://www.trae.dk/ or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxfBxmr0ZnI
