Since 1961 TEMAHOME has designed and manufactured contemporary furniture that is shipped to more than 45 countries around the world.
We want to provide you with all the information necessary for you to feel confident and secure about choosing our products. This includes sharing with you where each product is manufactured, the designer’s approach for each piece, it’s functions, and the quality of the raw materials used.
The advantage of exporting world-wide is that we are exposed to and inspired by many different cultures. Our cosmopolitan teams reflect this diversity, and their input helps stimulate our creativity.
We like to challenge ourselves to explore new concepts and ways of doing things. Innovation happens when we can link disparate influences to create something special and unique.
Wood origin: We only use material originating from sustainably managed forests and never use any endangered wood species.
Product impact: It is part of our design work to evaluate the impact of our choices on raw material waste, carbon footprint and recyclability to optimize it as much as possible.
Raw material waste: We do our best to select a combination of panel dimensions that optimizes the waste ratio.
Carbon footprint: The vast majority of our products are flat packed enabling us to optimize space in the delivery trucks or containers in order to reduce the associated carbon footprint. We burn our own wood-based waste meaning that a significant part of our energy needs are met using non-fossil fuels. We reduce power consumption in our factories as much as possible with new less consuming technologies and reduced working time of our most consuming processes.
Recyclability: Our products have been designed from the outset to embrace the circular economy model in which raw materials and packaging material we use are produced from recyclable materials. In addition, all elements are separable and can be easily recycled so that product end of life is factored into the equation right from the design phase.
Product development: Regular project reviews are organized to ensure simultaneous engineering. Marketing, Product Development and Production teams meet to make sure the right solutions are chosen for a qualitative outcome.
Supplier selection: All our suppliers of raw materials and components are regularly assessed to make sure they are up to our standards and operate according to European and US laws.
Quality control: 3 quality control steps are key to our process. First we control the panel dimensions and drillings on our production lines, then each piece is checked prior to being packed, and as a last step we control that all packs are complete prior to closing them.
