World’s Most Sustainable Furniture Factory Design Is Once Again Of A Green Building In Norway The Plus
World’s most sustainable furniture factory design is once again of a green building in Norway The Plus. As Norway’s single largest investment in furniture in decades, 6,500m2 open production facility will double as a public 300-acre park. For hiking and camping while serving as a landmark aligned with the region’s mission to establish a green manufacturing industry. As the team states, The Plus will be the first industrial building in the Nordic region to achieve BREAM Outstanding. The highest environmental certification.
Designed to be ‘Paris Agreement-proof’ building, design is based on principles renewable and clean energy to match eco-friendly production. “(Vestre will be the world’s most sustainable furniture manufacturer). Building (The Plus) will be an important step in reaching this goal. By using (cutting-edge technology) and (Scandinavian) collaboration, we can produce faster and greener than ever. In that way we will ensure global competitiveness through our leadership in (environmentally-conscious) production.” World’s most sustainable furniture factory design is once again of a green building in Norway.
The Plus is located in the village of Magnor. In the geographical midpoint between Vestre’s headquarter in Oslo and the company’s existing steel factory in Torsby, Sweden. The building is conceived as a radial array of four main production halls. The warehouse, the color factory, the wood factory and the assembly – that connect at the center.
Center of The Plus is the logistics office and exhibition center with direct connections to all four production halls. The central hub wraps around a public, circular courtyard where the latest outdoor furniture collections are exhibited with changing seasons. Outdoor plaza allows views for visitors and staff to experience the factory’s production processes in full transparency.

The Plus Will Employ Several Industry 4.0 Solutions
That The Plus will employ several Industry 4.0 solutions. Such as smart robots, self-driving trucks, and a tablet to manage the entire factory. Every machine is assigned one of Vestre’s 200 colors, which spill onto the floors and lead back into central roundabout. This colorful mapping of the machinery creates visual cues, that help guide and explain workflow of the Vestre production facility.
World’s most sustainable furniture factory design is once again of a green building in Norway. Allowing visitors to easily follow the production process as if touring a museum. On all four sides of the buildings, visitors and staff are invited to hike around the facility. And conclude on the green roof terrace, transforming the (furniture factory museum) into a campus in the woods.
On the rooftop, 1,200 photovoltaic panels are placed and angled according to optimal solar efficiency. Excess heat from the panels are connected to an ice-water system for cooling, heat and cold storage tanks. Heat pumps and energy wells as a storage support system. Overall, the system contributes to at least 90% lower energy demand than that of a similar conventional factory.

“With Vestre we have imagined a factory that is simultaneously front of house and back of house. The beauty of the factory is the clarity of its organization. Conceived as the intersection of a road and a production line it forms a large plus connecting everything to everything. The radical transparency invites visitors and hikers to enjoy the whole process of manufacturing. While providing the workers the thrill of working in the middle of the forest.”
