Top Sustainable Materials in Commercial Interior Design

It’s becoming more and more important to do what we can to slow climate change.  As well as those working in commercial interior design considering the best ways to produce creative and sustainable commercial developments, manufacturers are also coming up with a new generation of sustainable products.

There’s a lot of sustainable materials on the market, which is brilliant in our opinion. As more become available,  commercial interior design companies are challenged to get more creative, produce more beautiful options, at a more competitive price. Rather than a list of every single material available, we’ve highlighted a few standout products.

Mycelium

Products made from mycelium are at the frontier of sustainable products, but what is it. Mycelium is the thread like roots of fungus, this can then be processed in a number of different ways to produce all sorts of versatile materials, including; leather substitutes, insulation foams, packaging, acoustic panels and even sustainable buoys.

Ananas Anam - Sustainable Products Commercial Interior Design

Ananas Anam

Ananas Anam make products from waste pineapple leaves, these are normally considered a waste product of pineapple farming. By doing this they also create social impact by introducing jobs to rural areas, diversifying income to the pineapple farmers, who normally rely on seasonal harvest. In addition, any left-overs are used for fertiliser or biofuel.

Ananas Anam have 2 main products Piñatex and Piñayarn, these are a leather substitute and a cotton or yarn substitute.  These are used for clothing, furniture, footwear, accessories, sporting items, and continually expanding into new areas. Being able to produce these from pineapple leaves means less space is needed for farming additional items.
