Branching out from their typical focus on furniture, Sweden-based company Massproductions have produced a range of cushions using their signature thoughtfulness around sustainability. Launched in May, the designs themselves are simple, but they come in a variety of textures and colours that make them fun and elegant.
Massproductions created two types of cushions for their launch. The Friday Cushion is a cylindrical bolster pillow, featuring the embroidered ‘M’ of the Massproductions logo on one circular end, while the Saturday Cushion is a more traditional rectangle shape with the ‘M’ tucked stylishly in one corner. Both cushions come in a range of exclusive textiles, including a soft Silas fabric designed by Raf Simons, which is made from the wool of six-month-old lambs and is available in dark blue or mustard yellow. The other materials include an elegant bouclé from Scottish fabric supplier Bute, available in black or white, and a mottled fabric called Square Safire, available in black, white, or yellow.
While the new cushion range looks incredibly fun, we at Casper Magazine are particularly excited about the sustainability of Massproductions’ approach. Each cushion has three chambers, which ensures the pillows are light and provide a high level of comfort. The inner layer is made from recycled feathers and the two outer layers are made from recycled down, all sourced from textile recycling company Re:Down. Massproductions is also attentive towards preventing their own products from becoming waste. When old cushions are returned to them, Massproductions reuse 97 percent of the material in new products, while the remaining three percent, consisting of broken feathers and outer materials, is converted into organic manure and insulation.
Now we have found a quality that gives just the right feeling, and also with recycled down, which removes any guilt from your seating pleasure.
With a focus on both recycled and recyclable materials, Massproductions’ new line of cushions shows how easy it is to make better environmental decisions across the entire production process. Both the Friday and Saturday Cushion designs embody a comfort and style you can enjoy without worrying about costing the planet.
