Raw materials

Wood is a key raw material at Nomique.

Apart from wood, we also use other raw materials including steel, textile, and plastic to create our product line.

We choose our materials carefully, and prioritise the use of wood over steel. Compared to other raw materials, wood offers major benefits such as the possibility to source it locally and reduced energy consumption in processing this raw material to obtain individual components that will later be used to produce our furniture pieces.

Wood

We strive to make our products as sustainable as possible, so we source all our wood locally.

We only use FSC® (C113118) certified wood in our production process. Through energy-efficient processing, the raw material is transformed into wooden components, MDF, or clipboard panels. We mostly use wood waste, such as chips and sawdust, for the production of chipboard.

Compared to other materials, wood is relatively easy to repair and maintain; wood is also 100% recyclable, so it can be given a second life, and once it reaches the end of life, it can constitute a source of clean fuel to meet sustainable energy demand.

Textile

When selecting our textile range, we place great emphasis both on quality and the environmental impact of the materials.

Since sustainability plays an essential role in our selection process, we strive to use fabrics that are either OEKO-TEX certified and/or hold the European Ecolabel. This is how we ensure that our end products meet the highest environmental standards.

We also focus on reusing our waste materials.

Steel

Alloy steels consist of different proportions of iron and carbon. The issue with steel production is that it’s an energy-intensive process.

Just like wood, steel is 100% recyclable. However, in the primary steelmaking process, a big part of crude iron is required since the proportion of recycled steel can’t exceed 30%.

Plastic

There are many types of plastics available today, each of them with different properties and characteristics. PET, PVC, PE, and PP are the most popular and commonly used plastics of them all.

We only employ recycled plastics to create our sustainable furniture pieces.

We use recycled PP to produce end caps, recycled PET for the Plastic Whale collection, and a variety of recycled plastics to create our beautiful Wybelt stools.

Hemp and bio-resin

Our goal is to become a fully sustainable furniture manufacturer one day and produce only circular furniture. Creating 100% biological chairs aligns with our values and vision.

We were able to put our idea into practice by employing organic hemp and Plantics bio-resins, and that’s how our beautiful Hemp Fine and Hemp High collections came into existence.
