Making sustainable workspaces the new normal.
Cover your eco-friendly bases with sustainable workspaces. At Recess we’re creating office furniture that respects the Earth.
Let’s get transparent!
Being a physical product led company is an uphill battle against climate change and waste. So we decided to change the status quo. As Australia saw a new need for unconventional office spaces and wfh setups, we saw our opportunity to make something better.
Our vision was simple: create beautiful, functional, and sustainable workspaces that cater to every kind of office need. Furniture that will outlast design trends and materials that don’t cost the earth. All while crafting the comfort and functionality to boost our customers’ everyday work performance.
Before designing anything, we wanted to make sure what we created would have a net positive impact on the environment. From our material sourcing and packaging to our design and durability, we didn’t take any shortcuts when creating our product line. Our focus has always been on reusing what already exists, sourcing sustainably, and ending the waste cycle of office furniture. We’re building sustainable products that look amazing, increase productivity, and last (almost) forever - and that’s about as big a promotion as office furniture can get.
And although we’re proud of the sustainability efforts we’ve made so far, we’re not stopping here. We have big dreams for sustainability as a company - and we’ll get there - but for now, we’d like to share what we're doing today.
