For our worldwide customers, we develop unique and exclusive Lighting and Living concepts. Our customers work In close corporation with our product development design team which is specialized in trendy and innovative new Home Living products. Tangla Design Team develop these new concepts and products in different product categories for indoor and outdoor use. All these categories you can easily view through the following links, for lighting: pendant lamps, floor lamps, table lamps, wall lamps, ceiling lamps, LED light bulbs, rechargeable light fixtures. For living: Chair, Sofa, Table.
At Tangla Lighting and Living Limited, our strategy is to be ahead of the game. We believe it’s critical to gain experience and have a long term strategy when it comes to sustainability. We want to be prepared when the big green wave comes as it requires a whole new way of thinking, sourcing, developing, production and selling products.
Tangla Design Team designs products for reuse and recycling. Make them easy to disassemble so that the parts can be reused to make new products. During this process we consult sustainable design standards and guides, (e.g. Design for the Environment) and consider product life cycle. Use life cycle analysis tools to make the design more sustainable and use non-toxic or recycled materials which have a lower environmental impact than traditional materials. Beside this we use manufacturing processes and produce products which are more energy efficient than traditional processes and end products. With the focus to build longer-lasting and better-functioning products which will have to be replaced less frequently, which reduces the impact of producing replacements.
The key points Tangla Design Team follows in the process is the Life cycle of a product. A product's life cycle involves: design, creation, manufacturing, transportation, use and disposal.
As a product goes through these stages, it uses natural resources such as energy and water. It also creates waste, pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions. All of these aspects contribute to the product's impact on the environment.
Design and creation stage
Transforming materials into products often requires complex manufacturing systems and uses resources such as energy, water and materials. Extracting these resources, whether through mining, harvesting or land clearing:
-generates carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
-uses water and land
-produces waste products
The main effect of manufacturing is due to the energy used to create the product, and the emissions (air, water and waste) generated during the process. When thinking about how and for how long the product will be used, consider its:
-quality – the right materials and manufacturing processes can increase a product's durability, reducing the need for disposal and replacement.
-function and efficiency – convenient and effective products are less likely to be replaced with competing products.
-appearance – if the look and feel of a product is part of a passing fad, it might be replaced even if it's durable.
Disposal at end of life
What will happen to the product at the end of its life, will it go into landfill or be recycled? While you can't control what your customers do, our eco-design can make recycling easier and landfill less damaging:
-make any parts that must be thrown away (such as the packaging) easy to recycle.
-try to avoid organic materials such as wood going into landfill where they're not exposed to oxygen. Instead of disintegrating, organic materials tend to mix with other substances and produce methane, which is a potent greenhouse gas.
What is eco-design
Eco-design is a process for designing products that considers the whole life cycle of the product and its impact on the environment. Eco-design not only improves the environmental outcomes but can reduce your costs in the long-term. Making environmentally friendly products by investigating the potential impacts of the product – and finding ways of reducing these issues through eco-design – we can create functional, aesthetically pleasing and successful designs without locking in unnecessary environmental impacts.
When choosing the materials for our product design Tangla Design Team think eco-fibre, there are several fibre options for lamp shade construction and textile use, and each has pros and cons from an environmental perspective. Important for us that it last by selecting materials and design styles that will promote durability and longer use of the product. Enhance recyclability, by selecting materials that can be easily recycled or designing the product so it has a timeless style will decrease its environmental impact and reduce VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
When thinking about how to improve the design processes, Tangla Design Team follows the below points, which are important:
-less is more, reduce the ecological footprint of the product by designing patterns to use up as much of the material as possible.
-think life cycle, we try to find innovative ways of reducing the impacts of our product throughout its life, from packaging to the washing and care, and end of life.
-be efficient, we manufacture and follow production processes that are energy efficient, we reduce inputs such as water and chemicals and use green, renewable energy when possible.
-make it multifunctional, encourage customers to do more with less through multifunctional design.
Tangla Design Team can support you by using eco-design as a selling point:
-We can create a label that communicates eco-options to consumers such as ethical construction.
-We can support you to provide independently verified certifications for environmental management and ethical practices.
-We can help to develop new innovative ideas that customers trade the product when they're finished with it or they can re-construct it into something new, have it properly recycled or donate it to charity.
Sustainable product design checklist
According to the United States Environment Protection Agency (EPA), between 70 to 80 percent of a product’s environmental impact is locked-in during the design and development stage. By investigating the potential impacts of products and then finding ways of reducing these issues through eco-design Tangla Design Team can help you to create functional, aesthetically pleasing and successful designs without locking in unnecessary environmental impacts. Identify key outcomes in the design and concept development process.
Our Tangla Design Team will discuss with our customers the impact upon the entire design process and the environmental impacts of the product. This starts with the first production of the prototypes and sustainably thinking. We develop prototypes that can be modified to reduce the amount of prototyping required if design changes are made and we prototyping until you're happy with the design is a better approach than having to mass produce it more than once because the design has changed slightly.
Selection of materials is important in the process, that is why we select low impact materials that will promote longevity in your product. Avoid coupling materials that cannot be recycled. Preference materials that can be recycled in the country the product is intended for and design techniques such as honeycombing to reduce the amount of material used.
Tips to reduce inefficiencies in manufacturing and packaging Tangla Design Team discuss with our customers, by ‘close the loop’ by reusing waste materials and minimizing virgin material inputs and choose recycled materials for packaging products that can in turn be recycled. Flat pack the products to reduce cargo space and the cost of transporting them, and discuss sustainable packaging designs and new packaging options. All focused on ways to reduce the amount of packaging and still protect the product.
