‘e’pack’ is a new collection of seating, planters and lighting for california-based company environment which focuses on exploring a diverse mix of sustainable materials and textures through their designs.

the ‘e’pack’ series stands for furniture which is efficient, environmental and economical. the pieces are light and compact requiring minimal packaging and energy use. this collection is designed by environment’s creative director jean-marie massaud, with ‘walter’ chair by french designer marc berthier.

berthier’s ‘walter’ can double as an indoor or outdoor chair. it is foldable for easy storage. instead of a standard back cushion, the supporting upholstery is made from upcycled environment billboard canvas.

the floor lamp version of ‘grace’ is counterbalanced by a stack of your favorite magazines or books, secured by a canvas belt, reducing shipping impact and adding an element of customization.
