Sustainable Modular Durable Ecological Timless Flexible Recyclable Innovative

System 180 is committed to responsible, future-oriented action for the benefit of people and the environment. We are convinced that we go beyond the general requirements of environmental protection and occupational safety.

Sustainability is a central component of System 180’s identity, and longevity and recyclability are deeply anchored in our products and our corporate ethics.

Our values “Sustainable Development Goals”

Research and innovation for a sustainable future

We see open innovation through knowledge exchange as an essential contribution to the creation of a sustainable future. Findings from collaborations and the lively exchange through networking are continuously incorporated into our improvement processes. Our proven furniture series Design Thinking Line, for example, is the result of our close partnership with the Hasso Plattner Institute and stands for agility and sustainability.

Continuous innovation is a fundamental part of our corporate philosophy. In intensive research work we dedicate ourselves specifically to sustainability topics. For many years we have been driving the marketability of bio-based material innovations and substitutes through our participation in various research consortia, including partners such as the Fraunhofer Institute, TU Berlin, HNE Eberswalde and UdK Berlin.

Under the leadership of the Fraunhofer IAP and accompanied by the HNE Eberswalde, System 180 is currently participating in the joint research project ReSpan as an application partner. The aim of the project is to develop a recycling process for wood-based materials. This would enable us to introduce another product line made of recycled material as an alternative to the MdF material used.

Currently, System 180 is involved in the PERMA project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The goal is to develop an open, digital platform for the recycling economy in the furniture and equipment industry. Innovative product lifecycles and manufacturer-independent compatibility guidelines enable sustainable and flexible reuse and further use of products in a value-preserving form. The development of innovative business models creates a platform for re-use, up-, down- and recycling. In this context, we also cooperated with the international research project CIRCit of DTU.
