When autumn arrives, we again spend more time at home on the sofa, without paying any attention to the large carbon footprint of upholstered furniture. What is the life cycle of a sofa and how can we create more sustainable pieces of furniture? – these questions were taken up by Argo Tamm when writing his master’s thesis. Here we are sharing an Eesti Päevaleht article about Argo’s diploma thesis, which also won the main prize of the EKA applied research and development work competition at the beginning of autumn.
