Join us for breakfast in Milan

Our Sean Sutcliffe, co-founder of Benchmark, will be giving a keynote talk at an Architects Breakfast during designjunction edit Milan.

He will discuss Benchmark’s pioneering work,in conjunction with the American Hardwood Export Council and PE International,  on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in furniture making (a world first) using examples from landmark projects The Wish List  and RCA Out of the Woods.

Life cycle Assessment is a scientific tool that helps industry to establish environmental frameworks that have real meaning and assess true sustainability. The results present the cradle-to-grave impact of creating, transporting and installing a piece of furniture for six impact categories, including global warming potential (GWP) and carbon footprint.

The Architects Breakfast will take place on Wednesday 15th April from 9am – 11am and includes complimentary breakfast, a private view of the show and live demonstrations from designers on site.

Spaces are limited. RSVP here >
