If there’s one word that captures the philosophy of sustainability better than any other, it’s quality. It’s a simple concept, especially considering how products were traditionally made before humans slipped into a wasteful throwaway culture. Studio Seitz places the concept of quality at the center of its mission statement. As a result, Studio Seitz’s eco-friendly furniture is built to last.

Two aspects of Studio Seitz furniture rise to the top of the environmental ladder – quality materials and craftsmanship. As the company proudly declares, “The Seitz collection is produced by our family of skilled artisans who have passed on unparalleled passion from previous generations – so our furniture can be too.”

Choosing quality items is an often forgotten value in modern society. However, a quality product eliminates the need for replacement throughout its life cycle, thus protecting the environment from unnecessary pollution and waste.
Studio Seitz furniture is made of solid wood, such as European ash from FSC certified forests. Likewise, the company relies as much as possible on aluminum (the most recyclable metal), natural cork, recycled brass, glass and stone. These high-quality, durable materials have been selected by Studio Seitz with the hope that the furniture will be proudly passed down from generation to generation, rather than prematurely diverted to landfill.
In addition to consciously sourcing materials, Studio Seitz furniture is crafted using enduring traditional craftsmanship that has been passed down from generation to generation. For example, Swiss artisan Adalbert Fässler adorns these pieces with the traditional metal stamping process, a timeless practice passed down through six generations of his family. Likewise, the woodworking and joinery specialist Urs Mätzler continues the tradition that the company started in 1888. As a fourth-generation artisan at the Mätzler joinery company, he represents the antithesis of mass production. Thomas Seitz leads the precision machining team for Studio Seitz products as a fifth-generation craftsman.
