Sustainable Design: One For Hundred

WORDS Lindi Brownell Meiring

New Austria-based furniture brand One For Hundred plants 100 trees for every piece of furniture it sells.

Founded by Anna and Karl Philip Prinzhorn, the idea behind One For Hundred was to start a furniture company with a difference.

The brand produces solid wood furniture harvested from its own certified forests, located north of Vienna. “The woodland consists of mixed deciduous and coniferous forests, typical for growing in this region,” states the brand on its website. “We make sure to keep a healthy mix of different kinds of trees and avoid planting mono cultures. This supports the development of a varied biosphere and helps to keep the soil healthy. Our forest is PEFC certified and comprises acknowledged oak populations whose seeds are used by tree nurseries.”

The collection, made up of tables, a sideboard, stool and shelving system, are all fully customisable. Stand-out designs include the Bar X console table that also functions as a bar, with specially made drawers for glasses, as well as the Shadow sideboard, complete with a powder-coated tubular steel leg frame.
