About Encoded

Encoded is a Danish design furniture and interior brand that unifies the finest local carpentry traditions with modern, natural aesthetics. They combine the sleek lines of Danish furniture design with the workmanship of skilled Balinese craftsmen to create a collection of handcrafted lounge chairs, benches, daybeds, stools, bar stools and tables.

 

Their collection of handmade furniture is a great example of sustainable design. Never compromising style over substance, the furniture is made of certified untreated teakwood, conscious braided leather and recycled safety belts from old car scraps to give the furniture stability, flexibility, and durability.

 

Encoded designs are truly unique items of Scandinavian minimalism, with an urban look that expresses honesty and authenticity. They focus on craftsmanship and high-quality materials in order to create contrasts, play with your imagination, and add soul and rawness to your homes.

Brand Ethos

Encoded is a Danish design company with a furniture and interior collection where natural materials and aesthetics are paramount. Their style is the beautiful simplicity of nature combined with the raw expression of repurposed materials. Encoded constantly strives to design new furniture from natural materials without compromising on quality, using the finest, local carpenter traditions mixed with a modern and classic furniture design. However, they don’t believe beautiful furniture is what creates a home – it’s you, your kids, family, and friends. They just hope they can help you create the scene for the best stories of your life.

Brand sustainability

Encoded’s instinctive love for Nordic nature acts as the driving force behind all their designs. They prefer original preservation and love creating timeless interior pieces with high aesthetics and functional qualities.

 

Upcycled Materials

The circular mindset and durability have always been part of Encoded’s DNA. Proponent of only natural materials, such as untreated certified teakwood and conscious braided leather, their pieces also come with an upcycled element to them. They utilize safety belts from old scrap cars underneath the leather straps of their furniture to stabilize and improve durability and optimal seating comfort. This shows how Encoded prefers to work with the beautiful nature instead of against it, giving their interior look a stylish yet raw expression.

 

 

Handmade Design

Encoded is driven by its commitment to deliver original handcrafted Danish furniture in an ethical way. Therefore, the people they closely work with are the essence of their company’s philosophy. The brand collaborates with local craftsmen in Bali who take pride in creating handmade and authentic products for the home. Each of their designs has its own history with vivid past and imperfections, making them completely unique. The handcraft of these Balinese artisans has become a legacy worth passing on to posterity and Encoded wishes to preserve these traditions through a lengthy and trusted partnership. It’s imperative for the brand that its workers are treated in a respectful manner according to Fair Trade principles.

The Comarché Notes

Encoded’s beautiful furniture selection tells the story of unused materials that were destined for the landfill before they were given a second chance to shine. Bursting with character and full of endless stories, the unique interior from Encoded gives you hope for a better, kinder, and more resourceful tomorrow!

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
