We here at Olive Concept have taken micro-production to heart because of the many benefits it has for our customers as well as the environment.
Micro-production of furniture refers to small-scale, localized manufacturing of furniture.
It is beneficial for several reasons, particularly in terms of quality and resource utilization.

  1. High-Quality craftsmanship: Micro-production of furniture allows for greater attention to detail and craftsmanship. Skilled artisans and local productions can create unique and high-quality pieces that are often handmade, using traditional techniques and materials. This results in furniture with superior quality and durability compared to mass-produced furniture, which is often made with cheaper materials and less attention to detail. This is particularly true for the products here at Olive Concept, where our micro-produced furniture is crafted locally in Denmark which has a long tradition with woodwork.
  2. Customization and Personalization: Micro-production enables customization and personalization of furniture according to individual customer preferences. We at Olive Concept work directly with local productions to design and create furniture that suits the specific needs, style, and space of our customers. This leads to furniture that is unique, functional, and reflective of the customer’s personality and taste. Take for example the Olive Barstool where the seat can be changed to match the interior, season or mood of the owner.
  3. Sustainable resource utilization: Micro-production of furniture promotes more sustainable resource utilization. Localized production reduces the need for long-distance transportation of furniture, reducing carbon emissions and environmental impact. Additionally, our micro-produced furniture is FSC certificied and prioritizes the use of locally-sourced materials, minimizing the ecological footprint of furniture production.
  4. Reduced waste: Micro-production involves producing furniture in small quantities, which can help reduce waste. Unlike mass production, where excess inventory may be discarded or go unsold, micro-production allows for more precise production based on actual demand, minimizing overproduction and waste.
  5. Enhanced quality control: Micro-production allows for greater quality control throughout the production process. Local productions can carefully monitor each step of furniture production and ensure that each piece meets a high standard for quality, functionality, and aesthetics. This results in furniture with fewer defects or flaws, ensuring that customers receive a product that meets or exceeds their expectations.

In summary, micro-production of furniture offers several benefits, including high-quality craftsmanship, customization, sustainable resource utilization, reduced waste, and enhanced quality control. These advantages make it a compelling idea for those who value unique, well-crafted, and sustainable furniture.
