Bed manufacturer and Royal Warrant holder, Hypnos, has been crowned winner of The Furniture Makers Guild Sustainability Award 2015.
The accolade was given to Hypnos for its dedicated commitment to manufacturing and sustainability, as well as corporate and social reasonability and was chosen as the winner by a panel of experts in the furniture making industry, including Paul von der Heyde, the master of the Furniture Makers Guild.
Every Hypnos bed is created from natural materials including FSC or PEFC certified timbers that have been sourced from managed forests which means that all beds are 100% recyclable at the end of their life.
Hypnos’ wider responsible approach is emphasised by becoming the first carbon neutral bed maker in the country and by passing the Sedex Ethical Trading Audit.
The business offers retailers a full disposal service for old beds, with Hypnos’ sister company, The Furniture Recycling Company, deconstructing beds to create recycled raw materials for re-use in other industries.
Hypnos’ group managing director, Stephen Ward explains: "We are absolutely delighted to win this award. The fact that it is judged by peers and experts from within the Furniture Industry makes it even more special.
“We are now the current holders of two prestigious Industry Awards, as this win follows the NBF Bed Manufacturer of the Year award in September, which shows that our strategy and performance is now being recognised by the industry.”
