Peppermint Products*

Peppermint Products is a young and dynamic Start-Up with the mission to create 21st century furniture products. Their concept is brilliantly simple, it’s furniture made of cardboard! “Taking raw materials and turning them into something useful. Therefore our design process does not take place in front of a screen, I mean, what use is a computer when we are making real products for real people?”

Peppermint was brought to life just over a year ago, in a garage of course. With almost no budget, Roman, Nina, Felix and Lina set out to make an effortless, possibly temporary, yet stylish furniture solution. This could be for a student or young professional moving into new urban terrain who needs to get on his feet without complications, someone who might be looking for an alternative to Ikea products. Today they are proud to announce that “Dr. Chairman” – their cardboard chair – is featured in Munich’s Pinakothek der Moderne. The journey goes on, the Pepper Troopers are excited to meet new challenges day by day! Their product is no fuss furniture of cardboard, flat-packed and easy to assemble; no adhesives or tools necessary! It respects our environment by being highly sustainable in material, manufacturing, transport and disposal. It’s a “design” product which won’t burn a hole in your pocket. The cardboard they use isn’t just any old card, it’s honeycomb card, the same structure that is used to support the wings of the new Airbus A380. The honeycomb structure is made from 100% recycled paper and it is of course 100% recyclable. Recycling one ton of cardboard saves 46 gallons of oil; so, having cardboard furniture is super environmentaly friendly.

But just using an eco-friendly material is not the whole deal, transportation always carries its fair share in polluting our planet. To reduce impact, they produce their products and materials in Germany, reducing the distance the products have to travel. But because this is not enough, their products transport footprint is minimized by its light weight and low volume due to its flat-packability!

Apart from their permanent collection, Peppermint also offers bespoke custom solutions, a service which will equip anyone with anything made of cardboard, may it be your living room at home, the conference room in the office, or anything you can possibly imagine. Peppermint’s founders say “stay tuned, we have a lot more where this came from!”
