Manufacturing & Sustainability

Innovative & sustainable manufacturing is part of the DNA of Elli’s creative process. Their challenge is to reshape the current design procedure, combining Italian tradition and excellence, with innovative and sustainable technology.

Through a network of professional artisans and innovative methods, Elli supports circular manufacturing: by using Caracol‘s 3D printing technology each piece of furniture produced can be recycled and transformed into a material to produce something new.

Furthermore, the production process used allows to manufacture of objects according to a zero-waste logic and in full compliance with the circular economy rules. By virtuously exploiting the incredible properties of plastic, Elli products are in turn 100% recyclable once they reach the end of their life cycle.

Packaging

According to Elli’s philosophy, the brand proposes reusable packaging for its products made with FSC wood, no plastic such as bubble wrap and polystyrene are used. Elli’s wooden packaging can be reused as a container, storage unit or even urban garden.
