koziol »ideas for friends GmbH (2020)
Since 1927 koziol has been inventing, creating and producing top-quality products with unique designs for the home and beyond. And doing so responsibly and in harmony with humankind and the environment, saving both resources and energy while maintaining the ultimate quality and safety standards. All from its own factory in Erbach, nestled in the heart of Germany's Odenwald mountains.
The highest standards of sustainability are those that koziol sets itself. These explain why its product development, model-making, construction, mold making, marketing, production and logistics departments are all tightly integrated on the same premises.
koziol and its philosophy of manufacturing exclusively in Germany represent a responsible, future-oriented corporate strategy and design with a good conscience. Made in Germany was and remains an essential part of koziol’s successful philosophy.
koziol has been producing exclusively with green energy since January 1, 2013, saving around 1,276 tonnes of CO² annually. German raw material suppliers are preferred and manufacturing under one roof rule out long transport routes. For the logistics of finished goods, koziol cooperates with a worldwide partner company who shares its strict sustainability principles.
And why koziol has remained an owner-operated company that makes goods from a single type of material that is 100% recyclable. The entire manufacturing process can be seamlessly traced back to its sources. To date, koziol products have consistently received the top grade – excellent – in reviews by Ökotest, the major environmental magazine for German consumers. These overall scores testify to the safety and the correct use of all dyes and materials.
The unique koziol designs – which have garnered numerous international awards – are produced in cooperation between our own Werksdesign team and leading designers and universities across Europe. This symbiosis between brainstorming, high tech and craftsmanship has produced enduring and legendary design icons such as the »AROMA cup series jointly created by Matteo Thun and koziol, and the »TASCHE bags from koziol and the star architect Alessandro Mendini. Already in the design phase, great attention is being paid to sustainability – focus lies on the longevity of the products. And not only because of their unique combination of function and emotion, products made from thermoplastics are used year after year, thus proving their ecological advantage.
