This Product Plants A Tree
As part of ÅBEN's mission to make a more positive contribution to the environment, we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for every product sold. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
We need more trees. Find out more on onetreeplanted.org
About the maker
Alexandra grew up in Skåne, the most southerly region of Sweden – an area renowned for its natural beauty and its concentration of craftspeople. Alexandra returns each Easter for the Konstrudan when studios and workshops are open to the public. Growing up in such picturesque surrounds provoked a desire for contrast, Alexandra does not draw inspiration from nature and finds little stimulation there, Alexandra’s love of architecture filters through her work as man-made forms continue to preoccupy.
