As with Giroflex, sustainability has been central to the entire Flokk Group for decades. This already starts with the design – with the “five-three-concept“
Five design cycle criteria
- Low weight
- Fewer components
- Proper material selection
- Long lifetime
- Easy disassembly
Three focus areas
- Climate: smallest possible CO2 footprint
- Resources: less use of resources & minimal waste
- Health: reduced use of potentially hazardous chemicals

Giroflex – Sustainability as a tradition
The economical use of resources has a long tradition at Giroflex. Giroflex consistently uses low-emission materials and raw materials. Lacquers and glues are solvent-free, foams are CFC-free. Modern production methods with consumption-optimized processes mean massive savings in CO2, water, electricity and gas.
Durability is another ecological asset: Giroflex seating furniture is designed for many years of use. Spare parts are available over the long term. Repairs, cleaning and care further extend the investment cycle.
Cradle to Cradle
In continuation of its long tradition, in 2010 Giroflex decided to adopt the «Cradle to Cradle» systematic approach of eco-effective action.
Cradle to Cradle aims to break through the dilemma of finite resources through complete recycling of materials at the end of the product life without a loss of quality.
To this end raw materials are circulated in technical and biological cycles. Energy and material consumption are steadily reduced. Less wear also contributes to more environmentally friendly production. The comprehensive sustainability of the giroflex chair models since brought to market is confirmed by the Cradle to Cradle certificate.
