Sustainable use of materials
We are able to significantly reduce our carbon footprint through the use of innovative materials. We focus in particular on the use of renewable raw materials and recyclate, as well as on the use of low-carbon aluminium.
ORGANIC made of biomaterial
WOOD – from PEFC-certified forestry. Wood content min. 30% from wood felled within a radius of 100 km from our supplier.
PLASTIC – we have recently started to switch to bio-based feedstock under the Mass Balance Approach instead of virgin plastic. However, changing over the entire production will take some time.
IT IS OUR GOAL TO PRODUCE ALL ORGANIC MOTIFS WITH EITHER WOOD OR BIO-BASED PLASTIC UNDER THE MASS BALANCE APPROACH BY THE END OF 2024.
What makes our Organics special?
Made in Europe
Handmade in MK’s own facility. Each piece is unique.
The natural surface optics
of the organic motifs are striking. Organics also have a wonderful effect by day and by night.
The motifs have a long lifespan – they are wind and weather-proof as well as fungus resistant. This reduces their CO2 footprint.
The natural evolution of our Organic series
A new manufacturing process has given us brand-new design possibilities:
- Entire motif made from a single “cast” using a 3D printing process
- It is often possible to forgo an additional aluminium construction or reduce the aluminium content. This also lowers the CO2 footprint.
- Different shapes & colours can now be combined
- Available in a completely new range of sizes
Low Carbon Aluminium
Light motifs now also made of low-carbon aluminium
Aluminium is very durable due to its long service life. However, the primary production of aluminium is usually an energy-intensive process.
THIS IS WHY WE HAVE RECENTLY STARTED TO OFFER OUR LIGHT MOTIFS WITH LOW-CARBON ALUMINIUM.
The big advantage:
CO2 emissions down by 75% compared to conventional industry standards.
The electricity used comes exclusively from renewable sources: Hydropower, wind and solar. The carbon footprint per kg of aluminium is reduced to 4.0 kg of CO2, which is less than a quarter of the global average.
