Client: Knoll, Inc.
Project Type: Materials Transparency
Verdical Group worked with the modern furniture designer Knoll to source information required to register Declare labels through the International Living Future Institute (ILFI). Verdical Group provided:
Declare labels are transparency labels that disclose product materials ingredients — consumers are able to see if toxic materials exist in the products they’re purchasing, just as a consumer in a grocery store can see the ingredients in the food they buy printed on the product packaging.
The original driver for this service was the nearly one-million-square-foot Google Charleston East campus project, which is pursuing Living Building Challenge (LBC) Petal certification and will be furnished by Knoll. In order to meet LBC Materials Petal requirements, Declare labels for the Knoll furniture products needed to be completed through ILFI. We coordinated with Knoll’s many suppliers to ensure materials information was captured and transparently reported through the Declare process.
