IN THE MEDIA: SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

As much as 50% of the lifetime CO2 footprint of a building originates from the building process and the materials used. The Danish government has just agreed to have a commission look at ways to incentivise the use of climate friendly building materials including reused- and upcycled materials as part of the transition to a circular economy.

Politiken Byrum asked Anders Lendager to comment on the new initiative, here is a summary of what he said:

Materials we today consider as part of the solution often shows up to be energy intensive in the production process. As an example, he mentions isolation materials made of melted stone and glass. To Anders Lendager the debate is important, because it is the only way we can assess whether a building is sustainable seen in a lifetime perspective. We can use this knowledge to change the choices we make in the design process. However, he states, we have enough data already and we need to implement now.

UPCYCLED KITCHEN

The new Reform kitchen, UP by Lendager, is made of solid wood. What makes it unique is that the wood comes from upcycled offcuts that would otherwise have ended up as waste.

Waste is a resource that can be upcycled to give it a new life. At Lendager Group we are experts in upcycling materials that would otherwise have been dumped. One example is the new Reform kitchen, UP by Lendager. The kitchen is made of solid wood from exclusive offcuts that would otherwise have ended up as waste.

“The Reform Kitchen, UP by Lendager Group, is inspired by classic Nordic craftsmanship. It is designed by Lendager Group using excess materials that would otherwise have been dumped. The wood comes from high-quality offcuts from the exclusive wooden flooring company, Dinesen, which delivers floors to galleries, restaurants and homes throughout the world. We upcycle the material and give it a new life, thus helping to solve a waste problem as well as a climate problem,” explained Anders Lendager, CEO of the Lendager Group.

The kitchen is produced and sold by the Danish kitchen manufacturer Reform. The company produces high-quality kitchens in collaboration with the best Danish and internationally recognised architects and designers.

LENDAGER IN DR TV AVISEN

This Saturday on 1 September 2018 DR TV AVISEN interviewed Anders Lendager at Upcycle Studios and The Resource Rows in Copenhagen!

In the TV-spot DR talks to Rasmus Jarlov (Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs) and Anders Lendager about his view on The Government’s new ‘Strategy for circular economy’. The strategy is launched to switch Denmark to circular economy, where the value of materials are used fully – with minimized waste.

And yes, they misspelled Anders’ last navn. But the message is perfectly said!

In the two projects, our team uses upcycle bricks, upcycle windows, upcycle wood and upcycle concrete.

The Resource Rows and Upcycle Studios are developed in close collaboration with our sustainable friends from Arkitektgruppen, NREP and MOE.

See the TV-spot in DR TV AVISEN from 11:10.

WASTELAND AND ANDERS LENDAGER IN SWEDISH FORM MAGAZINE

The acknowledged Swedish magazine Form – Magazine for Nordic Architecture and Design has visited Lendager’s Wasteland-exhibition, which at the present moment is displayed at the art- and design museum Vandalorum in Värnamo, Sweden.

Yes, it is all about seeing waste as a resource in our future architecture in order to create a healthier and sustainable society with reduced CO2-emissions. We must be innovative og dare to change the current way of doing things in the built environment!

And as Anders Lendager says in the article, architecture can “(…) convey political messages and serve as a benchmark for the future. Politicians and other decision-makers can point to these projects and show that it actually is possible to push a certain direction”.
