The ORSON sunlounger awarded at FSC® Furniture Awards
The ORSON teak wood sunlounger from RODA (FSC-C155819), designed by Gordon Guillaumier, won the FSC® Furniture Award 2021, for the category « Outdoor furniture for home « , a competition organized by the Forest Stewardship Council® to recognize the commitment of FSC-certified companies in the indoor and outdoor furniture categories. After the all-Italian experience of the first two editions and twenty award-winning excellence in the sector, this year the FSC® Furniture Awards opens up to the European context, with a jury composed of FSC representatives from 11 countries and the delivery of six prize categories, five special prizes and a mention.
“So happy and honoured to be part of the FSC® family and to have received, again this year, the outdoor furniture award” – commented Daniele Pompa, CEO of Roda, at the virtual ceremony of the European FSC® Furniture Awards 2021. “RODA is in the middle of a real ecological transition that requires a lot of commitment and energy, but we are very satisfied with the path we have taken. We hope also, thanks to the participation in this competition, to inspire others and to be a driver of this mandatory change.”
FSC® believes it is important to encourage the positive examples carried out by companies engaged in the production of sustainable furniture, an area in which RODA has long been a witness.
