9to5 Seating products have once again received BIFMA LEVEL® 1 Certification, with HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls earning LEVEL 2 Certification. The classification, granted by the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association (BIFMA) is an industry-wide recognition for sustainability.
Developed in accordance with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) procedures, “LEVEL” is awarded to office furniture products that meet the stringent, multi-attribute ANSI/BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard. This LEVEL certification from BIFMA is the preferred sustainability standard for the General Services Administration (GSA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the state of California. Additionally, LEVEL certified products are preferred for projects being considered for WELL or LEED building certifications.
The HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls LEVEL 2 certification recognizes the products’ sustainable design. Originally, the product development team integrated sustainability early in the design phase which meant the chairs garnered more credits within the LEVEL certification process.
The design team prioritized assessing the environmental impact of the HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls. Both products were reviewed in an objective report (Environmental Product Declaration) gauging their effect on the environment throughout their life-cycles. This assessment examined the recycled content, material efficiency, chemical make-up and greenhouse gas impact of the product. This in-depth analysis enabled 9to5 Seating to earn the LEVEL 2 classification for HÅG Capisco and HÅG Capisco Puls.
This latest BIFMA assessment once again confirms 9to5 Seating’s commitment to transparency and sustainability in manufacturing its products.
The new 9to5 Seating Nautilus card features durable performance textiles including polyurethanes and vinyls in seven patterns and 80 design-friendly colorways and textures. This entirely bleach-cleanable offering includes options with an anti-microbial finish and adds to 9to5 Seating’s broad library of carded and graded-in fabrics.
Aimed at filling a demand in the market for reliable textiles designed for high-traffic spaces, the Nautilus patterns all have 100,000 or more double-rub abrasion ratings. The card includes A or B grades for accessibility and value in today’s competitive market. All patterns have a 10-day lead time.
As part of 9to5 Seating’s commitment to sustainability, all textiles on the Nautilus card are free of flame retardants.
“It’s another example of how we’re anticipating the needs of today’s buyer—conscious of durability and ease of disinfecting,” said Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “The Nautilus Collection satisfies that requirement while integrating design trends in colors and texture.”
Most of the textile patterns meet the BIFMA HCF 8.1-2019 Healthcare Furniture Design Guidelines for Cleanability. Check out the Nautilus Textile Collection here.
