Questions & Answers

Organic products have been known for a long time in the food and textile industries. In the furniture sector, on the other hand, there is apparently either short-lived chipboard furniture or eco furniture that somehow seems to have fallen out of time. We wanted to change that by developing ecologically high-quality furniture that still looks good. At ekomia we try to create affordable design furniture and to be as ecological as possible.

With bonds from Scandinavian designwe try to design the models as simple and straightforward as possible with a lot of attention to detail. We want to design timeless, minimalist objects that are not affected by fashion and still look contemporary in 20 years. Here you can see some design inspirations from ekomia .

People often have different things on their mind when they talk about natural products or sustainability Terms are used which are sometimes used synonymously or which can mean completely different things. When it comes to furniture, there are different approaches when it comes to ecological furniture:
  • Solid wood furniture from the natural material wood, which promise a long durability.
  • Healthy furniture with as few pollutants as possible.
  • Furniture that consists largely of natural materials and does without synthetic materials, colours and glues.
  • Environmentally friendly furniture productionusing only wood from reliable sources and raw materials that are not harmful to the environment.
At ekomia we pursue a holistic sustainable approach. Starting with the selection of high-quality, natural materials, environmentally friendly production, recycled packaging and short climate-friendly transport routes to the customer.

For ekomia furniture we use different types of wood:
  • The white furniture is made of FSC certified pine wood The white furniture is made of FSC-certified pine wood from Sweden and finished with an ecological white glaze. The beautiful grain of the pine wood shimmers through lightly. Pine is a very good furniture wood with a good price/quality ratio.
  • Our oak furniture is made of solid oak from Poland (FSC certified). It has a distinctive grain with sometimes more, sometimes less knots (wild oak). So you always have a beautiful unique piece of furniture. The surface is treated with a natural furniture oil. Oak is a very hard, resistant precious wood.
  • We use plywood for cabinet back panels and drawer bottoms. With plywood, thin layers of wood are glued together. This gives a stable natural material that is very strong even at low thickness.
  • For our custom-made furniture customers can choose between solid wood of beech, beech heartwood, oak, wild oak, ash and European walnut. All woods are FSC certified.

In contrast to chipboard, solid wood is glued together from complete wooden parts (solid wood). This gives a stable, durable construction that can be easily repaired, even if dents, cracks or scratches occur. Solid wood furniture can thus live for generations. It is of course important that the design of the furniture does not go out of fashion at some point. That's why we at ekomia try to make our organic furniture as simple and timeless as possible, so that you yourself and future generations can enjoy the pieces for a long time.

At ekomia we use a formaldehyde-free white glue. Unfortunately, wood glue in furniture construction is mostly produced synthetically and in many cases on the basis of formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a substance that occurs in nature, but which can be harmful to health in the case of increased concentrations in the room air. Especially chipboards have a high glue content of up to 10%, which is often based on formaldehyde. Solid wood, on the other hand, which we use for the most part at ekomia, requires very little wood glue (less than 1% glue) for production.

We only use environmental paints and furniture oils with natural ingredients. Conventional paints are usually produced synthetically from petrochemical products. In the case of natural colours, efforts are made to use organic and mineral raw materials wherever possible. The use of solvents should also be avoided, because solvents are harmful to the environment in nature and can affect the health of furniture makers. Ekomia uses only natural paints based on vegetable oil, which are approved for children's toys according to the DIN EN 71 standard, are vegan in production and avoid known allergenic substances.

Naturally oiled or glazed wood surfaces have the advantage that scratches or stains can be easily repaired:
  • For light soiling or dry surfaces you can simply polish the furniture oil or wood stain with a cotton cloth from the wood surface.
  • For heavier soiling, you can rub the oil or glaze with a sanding pad to remove the stains.
  • Very heavy soiling must first be sanded away with coarse sandpaper (P100 - P200) and then re-sanded with sandpaper before the surface can be treated with oil or glaze.
  • Deep dents or holes in the wood should be filled with a furniture wax before treatment.
You can buy care sets and wood wax for all white and naturally oiled ekomia organic furniture from us. If you want to build and treat a piece of furniture yourself, you can also get ecological wood glazes and working materials from us. To the wood care products

Every solid wood has its own characteristics, which must be taken into account during production. How does the wood stretch after cutting? How does it react to oils and glazes. Many years of experience is therefore essential in the furniture craft. A piece of furniture goes through the following steps in production:
  • Wood selection and cutting of the raw planks
  • Gluing to panels or strips and rough sanding
  • fine cut, milling & drilling
  • Fine sanding and treatment with ecological oil or glaze
  • Quality control and packaging
We work together with experienced production partners. Our partners for oak furniture, for example, manufacture exclusively solid oak furniture and know all the peculiarities of the wood. Our design drafts and specifications for sustainability are thus supported by the production know-how of our partners.

Why do you always have to buy things new? We asked ourselves this question and designed a range of upcycling and DIY furniture and created building instructions for it. All building instructions you will find free of charge on our website. This way you can also use simple means to upcycle old things to new ones and enrich your home with stylish unique pieces.
Take a look at our DIY section. There you will find some ideas how to create new things from old branches, concrete or packaging - in a simple way and with tools that everyone has at home. To the DIY area
