THE HOME OF SUSTAINABLE THINGS specialises in products with zero or low carbon output and is the first of its kind store and a design platform worldwide to curate exclusively, circular and sustainable design. Its unique take on design and product development addresses waste in the economy and demonstrates design processes that tackle the issue

As a leader in the circular design movement, THE HOME OF SUSTAINABLE THINGS represents a sophisticated collection of ethical products that demonstrates artisanal skills against a backdrop of sustainability and innovation. Its current selection explores the use of construction waste, agricultural waste, food and paper waste, glass, metal scrap, bio waste and so on as building materials and reveals the possibilities of crafting not only aesthetically beautiful and useful objects, but achieving it without putting more strain on global resources.

By repurposing and redistributing the so-called “waste”, HOST provides an alternative to conventional product design as well as a spectrum of unique opportunities for interior designers, architects and other creatives to advance their fields, enabling their own carbon footprint reductions.
