As such, in its own operations – down to its packaging, which consists of 100% recycled material – Kovac Family prioritises eco-conscious practices. Founded in 2012, the family-owned business began its steady climb to success. The company’s story begins over two decades ago, when in 2000 Camilla Kovac, after receiving an MFA from Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, opened her own studio. Camilla received awards such as D&AD, Special Mention Award XXI Compasso d’Oro, and “Light Idea of The Year”, she also received grants from Vinnova, Sweden’s Innovation Agency, ALMI and The Swedish Arts Grants Committee. As the family began to gain further interest in the environment, they decided to develop a project that would assist in changing the future. Kovac Family allows each member of the family to fully utilise their skills, with Camilla designing the furniture, Klara and Filippa working on the graphic design and marketing, and Christopher handling the technical aspects. Of course, it is blatant that sustainability is the beating heart of the company. Therefore, each product is developed and manufactured with as little impact on the environment as possible. Ultimately, Kovac Family wants its customers to be able to use its products for a long time and, in turn, it wants to create them with a good conscience. Therefore, it is imperative for the company to be both be transparent with its customers about its manufacturing processes, and to stay up to date with new innovations. As a result, the company is constantly working to minimize its environmental impact. Each furniture and clothing item is manufactured in Sweden, ensuring a high-quality finish, and a drastic reduction in the carbon footprint of each item. Furthermore, Kovac Family utilises FSC certified, sustainably reclaimed and ethical wood to craft its pieces – this means that the company takes on wood that is considered undesirable by other creators. Interestingly, through this process, it means that no two Kovac Family pieces are the same. Each one-of-a-kind item comes complete with its unique knots and colours, reminding the customer of where each piece originated from. Unique in the industry, Kovac Family stands out due to its burning desire to build a community, and not just sell products to its I customers. This is very much reflected through the company’s new all-digital service, Redefinder. Redefinder allows creatives and their clients to meet, collaborate, visualise, share, comment, and be involved in a huge creative hub. This is where the creative process begins – after all, collaboration is vital throughout much of the creative industry, and Redefinder simply streamlines this process. As the company goes into 2022, it is enthusiastic about the development of the aforementioned digital service, as this will enhance the work between the company’s production and marketing sectors. Furthermore, the company is set to continue providing sustainable, luxurious pieces to clients across the globe. Contact: Camilla Kovac Company: Kovac Family Web Address:
