Origin

Creating something sustainable out of glass is a challenging proposition. Glass production is an energy-intensive process, as it requires furnaces running constantly with temperatures upwards 1600°C. Tystø is a partitioning system made from reclaimed glass units, which in their first life cycle have been used as façade or roof windows. The windows are carefully taken out of the building as a part of a demolition or renovation process and subsequently disassembled into frame and glass units. The glass units are obsolete for exterior windows and are thus, normally, destined for elimination. However, they may live a long second life as indoor partitions, where they replace the conventional, heavily polluting glass. The wooden frame consists of discarded wood from regular wood manufacturing of various products. The wood may have been sorted out, for example, for having too many knots for a certain application. However, it works perfectly well for our application and we would much rather it be used than burned. All materials, apart from the doors, are collected, processed, and produced in Denmark. Doors are manufactured in Riga. See how we turn waste into partitions. Tystø gets its name from the danish word for quiet, "tyst", as you enter a calm and quiet space, which often characterizes an empty meeting room. The calm before the productive storm if you will.
