Master craftsman Tristan Titeux is proud to announce the release of his debut book ‘Furniture for the Future: How what you buy can change the world’. The hardback is an insightful and fascinating exploration of the eco loving author’s opinions on furniture, sustainability, healthy living and everything in-between.
Titeux says “The book is my personal view on the world of fitted furniture, sustainability and the world around it.” The major underlying theme of the book is Titeux’s enduring passion to ensure the earth remains healthy, productive and self-sufficient for the next generation. As society develops, so too does the destruction of rainforests, burning of non-renewable fossil fuels and rapid pollution of the air and oceans. Environmental research has indicated that as a global society we are currently using resources at a rate of 50% more than the earth can sustain.
Titeux’s aim is to make people aware of the catastrophic impact the population is having on the natural environment. The book is designed to encourage readers to make educated and informed choices that will ensure the children of the future don’t have to suffer from mistakes made in the past. This sentiment can be applied to all aspects of life, from furniture and clothing to food, water and electricity. Titeux says “Our children will wish that their ancestors had not made products that have poisoned their world. It is incredibly selfish to live like there is no tomorrow, to use resources like they will last forever and to not care about the consequences of what you flush down the toilet and pump into the air.” Given Titeux’s passion for environmentally conscious choices it comes as no surprise that Furniture for the Future puts a heavy philosophical emphasis on importance of understanding where products come from and the expense at which they have been manufactured. Sourcing environmentally sustainable materials is one of Empatika’s defining principles that Titeux is determined to share with the world.
Titeux says, “Today we have too much, we value little and don’t understand or know where our products come from, how they are made, by whom and how the materials affect the world, our health and future.” As well as the environmentalist angle a genuine passion for high quality, hand crafted furniture also shines through in the pages of Furniture for the Future. This is a reflection of Empatika’s dedication to creating beautiful, simple, unique and enduring designs.
Furniture for the future is available to purchase from the Empatika website for just £25. It is a must read for anyone who is interested in carpentry, sustainability and adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle.
