Germany - Baden-Wurttemburg International Design Award. Kalidro was awarded the Silver Award at Baden-Wurttemburg International Design Awards. The awards are backed by the German government. They reward orward-looking, high-quality design solutions that also address current trends. This year, the awards had a 'Focus Green'theme, focusing on the sustainability aspects of products.
During Kalidro development process we considered environmental impacts of our decisions at every stage of the product's lifecycle.
Life Cycle Assessment
The Kalidro is manufactured in Rosenheim, Germany, by Steelcase. Thanks to the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method, Steelcase can quantify the product's environmental impacts to set the stage for further improvements. This method, based on ISO 14044, is selected by the European Union for environmental evaluation. It allows us to measure the environmental impact of our products throughout their lifecycle.
Kalidro Life Cycle
elements: 30% less impact. The legs' corners are made
of 100% recycled aluminium. This leads to a 30% reduction of
impacts on Global Warming on the whole life cycle, compared to the
use of primary aluminium.
Desktop: 25% less wood. The thickness of the desktop has been reduced by 25% (from 25 to 19mm) without compromising its performance.
Legs: 75% less impact. The legs tubes are made of powder painted steel. This leads to a 25% reduction of impacts on Global Warming on the whole life cycle, compared to the use of anodised primary aluminium.
Waste management. Wood waste from desktop cutting is used to
heat part of the plant, saving 40 tons of natural gas and reducing
related emissions of CO2 by 150 tons per year. Processing of the
steel frame tubes produces no waste.
Energy and materials savings. Powder painting is free of volatile organic compounds (VOC-free) and heavy metals; paint that does not attach
itself to the product is reused.
Certified production site. The production site in Rosenheim (Germany) is fully ISO 14001- and EMAS II-certified.
Kalidro's minimised weight and volume improves packing filling rates and reduces the energy required for shipping.
No significant environmental impact occurs during the usage lifetime of Kalidro, the longest stage of its life cycle. The particle board is E1-certified for low emission formaldehyde.
End of life
Kalidro is 99% recyclable by weight and its packaging materials are 100% recyclable. 40% of its packaging corners are reused. Kalidro can be integrated into the Steelcase Environmental Partnership Program, which is designed to ensure environmentally responsible after-use strategies for furniture.
