Eco-Friendly Aluminum is Transforming Interior Design

Aluminum has become the “go to” material in green design. Not only does aluminum cost less than other materials such as steel, but it is also one of the most energy efficient and sustainable construction materials available today. Best of all, aluminum lends a sleek, contemporary look to virtually any design from doors and cabinets to phones and computers.

Versatile and Sustainable

Aluminum is the third most abundant element on earth and one of the most versatile metals available because it is lightweight, strong, resistant to corrosion, and durable. Best of all, aluminum is theoretically 100% recyclable with no loss of its natural properties. Recycling scrap aluminum takes just 5% of the energy needed to produce new aluminum, making it highly energy efficient and sustainable. In fact, the recycled content of aluminum building materials is currently between 50 and 85 percent. Moreover, the use of aluminum is only expected to grow. According to the 2016 global aluminum market for building and construction sector report by RnR Market Research, the use of aluminum is expected to increase annually by 6.31 percent until 2020.

Changing the Face of Home Design

Open any high-end interior design magazine and you’ll realize aluminum use is trending in homes and offices to give them a modern, sophisticated look while remaining environmentally friendly. Aluminum can be seen in tables, chairs, accessories, decorative wall panels, and cabinetry. Because of its malleability and ductility, aluminum gives designers flexibility and freedom in choosing the shape for their creations while remaining aesthetically pleasing. Also, aluminum significantly reduces the weight of interior design elements and slenderizes their appearance. Respected designers like, Philippe Starck, also cite aluminum’s 100% recyclability as a significant draw. “It has a high recycled content, and is environmentally friendly at an economical price point,” said Nelson Wills, Element Designs VP of Business Development.

The combination of beauty, strength and sustainability has led Element Designs to create various aluminum products. From aluminum frame cabinet doors and aluminum frame base systems, they are specially engineered to create a sleek look without visible functional hardware.
