Nook brings an inclusive approach to sustainability

There is a real focus on events building back in a more sustainable fashion. But what does sustainability really encompass? Furniture design specialist Nook argues that, within this sustainability picture, inclusivity must play a central role.

MPI member and Nook founder David O’Coimin comments: “Yes, responsible sourcing and recycling at end of life - or end of event - are key. But we don’t only see sustainability in terms of the materials used in the product build – it’s also about the impact of that product in its environment and, crucially, on its users.

“Can ‘sustainable’ events that only work for a section of society really claim to be sustainable? We’d suggest not. So, Nooks are designed in line with the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDG’s) and with inclusion as a central concept.

“It’s about creating experiences which are improved for everyone – where nobody is left behind. Events can take a real leadership position here.”

It's an approach that is turning influential heads. Nook has also now been officially recognised as a Certified Autism Resource. And Nook has been added to the post-Covid portfolios of FIRA Barcelona, RAI Amsterdam and the Business Design Centre London, among others.
