Kairos won this year the Design, Furniture & Home award for its Kairling® innovation, a recyclable and compostable biomaterial. These bio-panels present a light weight, easy machining, controlled thickness and surface finish. At each stage of its life cycle, from the flax cultivation which compose it to its end of life, the Kairlin® has been designed and validated at an industrial scale to have a high degree of sustainability in its composition and process. Kairlin® is produced within a very short supply chain, from the flax cultivated and transformed in Normandy (France).
