The new material for furniture is here to change the industry and save you money, effort, carbon emissions, and landfill space, as it increases productivity and durability. Developed at MIT, this material, made of engineered cellulose fibers, is lighter, stronger, compressible and 100% biodegradable. The furniture industry has used the same materials for decades, wood, metal, coils, and elastics. HoSTTech is here to make the manufacturing process simpler and faster since it takes 50% less time to manufacture a 3-seater sofa using HoSTTech versus the traditional materials. This means fewer energy, operators, and components to buy and manage. It simply means doing more with less. According to the EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency), more than 12 million tons of furniture and furnishings (sofas, tables, chairs, and mattresses) went to waste in 2018, and from that, only 40 tons were recycled. These numbers are only going up unless manufacturers start using better, more sustainable materials, like HoSTTech, which is 100% recyclable and 100% biodegradable, in addition to having a life span much longer than the 5-10 years usually seen in the industry. HoSTTech, inspired by nature’s Honeycombs, is compressible, before and even as a finished product, which translates into 1/3 of the space needed for material and finished product storage. Not to mention shipping, where you can fit 3x more sofas in a 40′ container. This new material, HoSTTech, has been successfully used in stationary and modular sofas, ottomans, bed bases, pods, and stools. It provides product designers with an array of options when it comes to length, depth, height, and armrest types. HoSTTech’s design team works hand in hand with manufacturers to ensure the adoption process is simple and benefits are optimized. HoSTTech is here to bring simplicity and performance to furniture manufacturing while being kind to the world.
