A true statement piece – Ekbacken Studios introduces the first design furniture made of groundbreaking Sulapac material

Ekbacken Studios’ entire signature Collection no.1 is now available in biobased and eco-safe Sulapac material. By incorporating Sulapac materials into their products, Ekbacken is taking a bold stance against environmental degradation while maintaining a commitment to producing high-end design pieces. The continued partnership with 3D-technology company, The Industry Sweden, ensures that the trio are merging technology and sustainability to produce high-end furniture locally. 

Award-winning furniture brand, Ekbacken Studios, dedicated to pushing the boundaries of artistic expression through the use of innovative materials and production methods, proudly announces a groundbreaking partnership with Sulapac, an award-winning material innovation company. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in the pursuit of reducing future waste, as the material is not only recyclable but due to its biodegradability leaves no harmful toxins or permanent microplastics behind at the product’s end-of-life.

Ekbacken Studios is renowned for its commitment to creativity, quality, and environmental responsibility. By joining forces with Sulapac, a company at the forefront of sustainable material solutions, Ekbacken Studios aims to continue its focus on using a variation of circular materials to create luxurious design pieces.

We are excited to collaborate with Sulapac, whose material innovation is a game-changer in the fight against plastic pollution,” says CEO Kristina Tjäder of Ekbacken.

Made of biodegradable biopolymers and natural wood Sulapac leaves no permanent microplastics or toxic residues behind. The wood originates from industrial side streams, and in the future also recycled biopolymers will be used. The materials have a low carbon footprint compared to conventional plastic.

Ekbacken is the first in the world to launch a large-scale product 3D printed with Sulapac material. “It’s a pleasure to work with another Nordic forerunner willing to challenge the status quo while fostering a culture of excellence,” says Juho Luukkanen, Sales Director at Sulapac.

It’s inspiring to see how seamlessly Sulapac material and Ekbacken’s contemporary designs play together,” says Juho Luukkanen, Sales Director at Sulapac.

Besides 3D printing, the Sulapac portfolio includes materials for injection molding, extrusion and thermoforming. With customers spanning from Four Seasons to Chanel, Sulapac has proven to meet even the highest quality standards. “The material is both beautiful and functional. Like nature,” Kristina confirms.
