Pointhouse – a meeting of product and planet

Established for over 30 years in one of Italy’s key industrial regions, and operational in over 40 countries, Pointhouse is a furniture designer/maker with a difference – and its products are now coming to the UK and Irish markets …

“At Pointhouse, designing and creating furniture isn’t just something we do,” states the Italian brand. “It’s our mission at every level of the business.”

Designed and made in Italy, Pointhouse’s products combine high quality, contemporary style, functionality, and Italian flair, resulting in a varied portfolio that puts sustainability first.

Using an array of materials – from wood, ceramic, glass, polypropylene, to PEFC- and FSC-certified timber, aluminium and steel,  Pointhouse creates stylish and sustainable furniture, driven by a constant search for increasingly greener materials and technologies, recycled and recyclable materials, and resources derived through certified processes and carefully selected partners.

“Planning and implementing business strategies based on sustainability and a circular economy ensure an effective, stable, secure and futureproof supply chain,” states Pointhouse. 

Products include Tata, an “iconic” Pointhouse product, and a familiar design that has been reimagined with the circular economy in mind: “Proof that you can have both style and sustainability”. The Tata chair is made with an aluminium and steel structure, and coated with environmentally certified powder, avoiding the use of chemical solvents. The backrest is produced using FSC-certified wood, while the elegant, comfortable seat is padded with recycled fabric and padding obtained from the recovery of post-industrial waste. Available for sale in a limited edition, Tata for the Planet comes in a vast selection of colours.

The T!pa chair, meanwhile, “represents strength and uniqueness, through simple but decisive lines”. In Italian, the term ‘tipa’ indicates strong, decisive women – “women who lead change, rather than waiting for it to happen”, explains Pointhouse: “As a brand led by women, with diversity at its core, we wanted a product to represent our social sustainability values, and so T!pa was born.” 

Pointhouse will exhibit at Milan’s I Saloni, taking place from 18th-23rd April, on stand C06-C10 in Hall 18. Find out more on the brand’s website, or by emailing [email protected].
