Ecodesign Guidelines

These guidelines relating to the environmental improvement of products are divided into three sections:
The first part presents examples of products in the furniture sector, which respond to certain principles of Life Cycle Design. The second section illustrates data regarding Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and references to literature and products in the project Casa Toscana / Green Home and to materials traditionally used in the implementation of product design. The product "upholstered furniture" has been taken as a case study because its components (body/frame, filling, cover), are produced from the most commonly used materials in the field (wood, metal, polyurethane, cloth). In the absence of systematic research, this information is inevitably fragmentary but still offers useful data for design and production choices. In the last section, finally, guidelines are presented as streamlined support for designers.
