Sustainable elements in the Suite
Earth Suite – the sustainable elements
The Earth Suite has been designed and decorated with full attention to detail, circularity and sustainability. Every element in the Earth Suite, regardless of the scale, is sourced, crafted or designed sustainably. The materials used either have an environmentally friendly origin or created from the materials that appeared during the renovation of the hotel, upcycled to a new, functional purpose. Another aspect of the sustainable approach to interior design is the selection of durable materials able to last through years of wear and tear.
The furniture design is provided by Mater, including lighting and accessories which are solid, sustainable and ethically sourced, produced with care and incredible techniques that minimize the footprints on our planet. Another furniture such as the Noa bed produced by Auping follows Cradle to Cradle philosophy in the production.
“It has been important for us to create a luxury suite, that is both comfortable and functional, in order to make the guest feel like home, and meet their needs.
- Eva Harlou
Highlights from the suite
Worth highlighting from the Earth Suite is the ‘Earth paste’ which is the ‘painting’ on the walls made from reclaimed crushed bricks – a simple waste stream from the renovation of Villa Copenhagen. The lamella wall which is a dominant feature in the suite is made from either reclaimed wood from the original roof or FSC certified wood. Another significant aspect working on a sustainable interior project like Villa, is to use materials that have the lowest impact on the environment and a long lifespan. Processing clay into flooring brick tiles does not require extensive resources and only uses natural material and it’s possible to re-enter the material in a circular economy without any environmental impacts.
