LIV is a company with a conscience.
We aim towards urban sustainable design.
To us, this means,
design that acknowledges human beings
through job creation,
design that is sensitive
towards culture and its local community,
design that makes economic sense
and that considers the impact it has on our planet
by the re-using and re-thinking of waste and materials.
The materials that we use
are not often regarded as resources
and our designs explore making waste beautiful.
We enjoy the adventure
of hunting through waste and discovering treasures, making for highly original and quirky pieces.
The methods that we choose
to execute our designs play an important role.
that hand made is better than machine manufactured,
as the carbon footprint
resulting from factory processing
is far greater than processes by hand.
However, when we find it necessary
to manufacture by machine
we make sure that it supports our local industries.
Green does not just stop at design,
it is a lifestyle and a mind-shift.
