It’s official: Eqio is eco-friendly. Eqio, the popular bathroom furniture collection from burgbad, has been awarded the German government’s Blue Angel ecolabel.
1. July 2021

The burgbad GmbH has been awarded the Blue Angel for its popular bestselling Eqio range. Thanks to the strict test criteria associated with the ecolabel, it is highly trusted by consumers who attach importance to sustainability. The label certifies that the bathroom furniture collection is made of low-emission materials, only uses wood from sustainably managed forests and has no adverse impact on health in the living environment.

For 40 years, the German government’s Blue Angel has been providing orientation for environmentally aware and health-conscious consumers who want to make sustainable purchases. It is awarded to products that undergo lengthy, complex and above all independent testing based on criteria that are defined and constantly updated by the German Environment Agency. The product-specific award criteria that a piece of furniture has to meet in order to receive the Blue Angel place particular emphasis on ensuring that, as a product for indoor use, it creates a healthy living environment. The furniture is also required to provide a high degree of usability, because a long lifespan protects both the environment and health.

Sustainability is a learning process

Low-emission products made of sustainably produced wood: recently awarded the Blue Angel, burgbad’s Eqio furniture collection adapts to bathrooms of any size and style.

The Blue Angel isn’t burgbad’s first ecolabel. “We’ve been promoting sustainability for a long time. It’s an ongoing process in which you’re constantly learning something new and both the production process and the product continue to evolve,” says Dr Susanne Sollner, head of innovation / sustainability management. “The Blue Angel was another new challenge for us, because it brings lots of individual tests together in a single, very extensive testing process,” continues the bathroom furniture specialist’s chief sustainability officer. But all the effort has paid off: “I think it’s important for our customers to know what they’re buying. And when a product with such broad-based appeal as Eqio is awarded the Blue Angel, it shows that expensive solid wood isn’t the only option for people who want a ‘green’ home – furniture made from responsibly produced and processed wood-based materials can be sustainable too.”

Eqio turns even the smallest bathroom into a feel-good space

Basins in ceramic, mineral cast or glass, mirror cabinets with innovative lighting solutions and clever storage space options: Eqio isn’t just sustainable, it’s versatile as well – and that goes for the vanity unit too.

Eqio has proved itself as a universally compatible bathroom furniture collection that is suitable for bathrooms of any size and blends in with a wide variety of styles, all while providing unusually good value for money. Top-quality materials and on-trend finishes give any bathroom furnished with Eqio the desired degree of cosiness. At the same time, Eqio is ideal for furnishing bathrooms to suit individual wants and needs as well – including well-organised storage space for care products, cosmetics & Co.

The extensive collection features vanity solutions with ceramic, mineral cast and glass basins, various items of bathroom furniture, functional mirror cabinets, clever shelves and innovative lighting solutions. Customers can also choose from six top-quality finishes: high-gloss acrylic fronts in white or grey and melamine fronts in four cosy wood effects: Cashmere oak, Flanelle oak, Frassino cappuccino and Marone truffle.

One standard feature of the Eqio range is something of a rarity in this price category: the carcasses of the furniture match the fronts to ensure a consistent overall look. Finely worked edges such as the laser-edged doors and the excellent workmanship – as underscored by the “Furniture made in Germany” label of origin awarded to all burgbad’s collections by the German Quality Assurance Association for Furniture (DGM) – make the Eqio bathroom furniture collection even more attractive.
