The robust box offers small items a regular place, whether in the office, in the kitchen or in the studio. In its variously sized compartments, everything you want to have close at hand is well stored and, thanks to the handle, also transportable. In 2010 the Toolbox was designed by Arik Levy for Vitra; they are available in seven colors.

so far! Because the all-rounder has a completely new shade: medium gray, you could also call it reusable granulate gray (which would be quite cumbersome, however). The Toolbox RE - like recycling - consists of 100 percent recycled household waste. The plastic comes from municipal waste disposal, for which recyclable materials are collected in the Gelber Sack program. After metals and other composite materials have been sorted out, the remaining plastic is shredded, cleaned and converted into high-quality reusable granulate.

Mildred Locke’s 2020 Gear of the Year

  Mildred Locke’s 2020 Gear of the Year From dynamo lights and a women’s gravel bike, to some plastic pots (yes, really) and a custom tourer, here’s everything Mildred’s been loving this yearOne of the main things you’ll notice is how few road-specific products there are, since I used the UK lockdown to explore my backyard, almost in a literal sense. Living a stone’s throw from the woods, and a very manageable mileage from the countryside, this year for me has mostly been about gravel tracks, bridleways, forest paths and lots of mud.

With this alternative to petroleum-based primary plastics, a significant reduction in energy consumption is achieved. The dark gray is the natural color of the recycled material used.

Vitra's compass stands for sustainability for the next decade

New approaches are also being taken with furniture: the TipTon RE chair, designed by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, is 97% recyclable - it is also made of granulate Household waste and has the smallest irregularities in color that look like precious shimmering inclusions. The classic Landi chair made of aluminum, which has been included in the range since 2014, is even 100% recyclable.

Vitra has had a certified environmental and quality management system since 1997; A sustainability report is published annually, showing how exhaust gases, wastewater and waste in production can be reduced through a bundle of diverse measures and new ideas. This also includes a product like the Toolbox RE: It will only be available in 2021, as before for 35 euros - and we are excited to see what will then follow for an innovative organic product from Vitra.
