Founded by Nikolaj Meier and Knut Bendik Humlevik New Works has become an internationally recognised designer brand with a stunning catalog of inviting and creative furniture, lighting and homewares. Collaborating with a large pool of influential designers and artists, New Works believes in honest materials, generosity in quality and earnest craftsmanship.
New Works has a sustainable approach when crafting each piece. Longevity is key in their approach to design so that they can create timeless, long lasting pieces that fulfill a purpose. Each material used in New Works products have been carfeully thought about; considering environmental impacts and durability. Certified materials with a long life expectancy is essential. As an example, they only use wood from FSC-certifed forestry for furniture.
Each product has a small amount of packaging, with each item delivered in brown boxes made from uncoated cardboard, which is biodegradeable and fully recyclable. New Works are almost at the end of replacing all the polystyrene with paper pulp and all plastic with recycled plastic, which shows how far New Works is going to take actions to help the environment.
Furthermore, nearly all New Works furniture is produced in Denmark. Manufacturers based in the Eurapean Union are bound to follow the chemical regulation REACH rules, which guarantees environmental protection.
New Works collaborate with a large number of internationally recognised, talented designers and artists who display the same deep fascination for sculptural forms and premium materials.
