Environment launches exclusive lifestyle line designed by noted eco-designer
Today Environment, a pioneer in sustainable furniture, has announced their first lifestyle line partnership with the launch of an exclusive lifestyle collection, Environment by Heather Heron. The line marks the first collaboration between Environment and noted accessories designer Heather Heron, and is the first lifestyle line to be housed under the Environment label. Known for her chic, modern and sustainable pieces, Heather Heron's designs bridge luxury and responsibility, making her an ideal partner for this exciting venture. "We are excited to have found a design partner and friend who shared the Environment values, aesthetic and passion for found materials," said Davide Berruto, CEO of Environment Furniture. "Heather's positive energy and talent are inspiring."
"My inspiration is rooted in creating beauty from limited resources. I feel this has come full circle to being a very modern way of life and what inspires my designs," says Heron.
For the first collection, vintage U.S. military, organically tanned leather, surplus Japanese denim, Japanese antique textiles and Heron's signature fabric, organic hemp textiles, were hand selected and built by artisans in California. Using reclaimed fabrics is a technique Environment has been employing for some time -- even using some of these same materials for upholstery for their sofas and chairs.
Environment by Heather Heron includes organic throws, hand knotted beach blankets, travel bags, accessories for men and women, organic hand dyed scarves, and surf bags from reclaimed vintage military. These pieces exude an understated luxury that celebrates craftmanship and the art and history of these textiles.
On Thursday, October 22, 2009, from 7:30-9:30pm Environment will host a launch party at their Los Angeles showroom (8126 Beverly Blvd). RSVP is required.
