When it comes to high-quality bamboo outdoor furniture, Northbynorth are considered leaders in the European market. Now the Denmark-based company, established by Niels Hjorth in 2008, has expanded its operations to Spain – not only seeking end-user clients but also enterprising industry representatives interested in becoming re-sellers. Northbynorth’s distinctive bamboo terrace furniture is created by designers David and Karin Mintz who, based in Vietnam for over 10 years, have extensive knowledge of bamboo as a material and its possibilities in furniture production. Working closely with the owner, they share a vision for creating bamboo furniture “based on the desire to harmonise high-quality outdoor furniture with Scandinavian style”.
Production of their bamboo furniture is 100 per cent organic. “Sustainable bamboo means that no dangerous substances have been used in production; no chemicals, pesticides or fertilisers
are used. “All of our bamboo, each horizontal or vertical cane in the Northbynorth’s furniture range, comes from bamboo plantations located in Vietnam, close to the factory that produces
the furniture. The factory employs local Vietnamese workers and uses its own bamboo throughout production, ensuring craftsmanship of the highest quality.”
