We make colourful, sustainable and inclusive furniture which encourages people to get together, to care and to participate in everyday democracy. If you travel around Norway, you can find furniture we created back in the 50s. It is still standing, creating sociable meeting places every day of the year.
This year, we have been especially concerned about people finding their way back. We hope we can both find our way back to each other and create a strong ‘we’, and that we can find our way back to nature and the fight for sustainability.
This will also be the year that Vestre will open the doors—and the green roof—to the world’s most environmentally friendly and transparent furniture factory: The Plus. It was designed by BIG Bjarke Ingels Group as a completely new kind of factory where people, production, technology, architecture and nature are completely integrated with each other. In the heart of the building, which is shaped like a plus sign, there is an atrium with a single tree. It is there as a symbol of the global community—as an axis mundi.
We know that the global environmental crisis is being made worse by the fact that many people have lost contact with nature. Vestre’s aim is to be recognised as the world’s most sustainable furniture manufacturer. It's a bold aim which guides our culture and the way we do business. Every year, we at Vestre give 10% of our profit to initiatives across the world that support the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Please visit our website where we share more about our vision and about how we are working to achieve it.
