Ethical Fit Outs

Special Feature – Triodos Bank HQ, Bristol

Simon Kohn Furniture Ltd recently undertook the joinery and cabinetry fit out for the new Triodos Bank HQ in Central Bristol. It was a considerable undertaking, working closely with the designers Harmsen, to achieve the most sustainable, attractive and contemporary interior. Over 20 years ago we stopped using tropical hardwoods from South America and as a company we have always sourced our materials from companies that share the same ethical stance and provide “chain of custody” documents where required. However the Triodos fit out took us to a new level of compliance. Using a wide variety of new and innovative materials alongside reclaimed timber like Pitch Pine, we were able to achieve a strong, vigorous and contemporary interior that met the clients exacting ethical and environmental standards.
