Work With Island - Eco-designed cabins made in France

Eco-designed cubicles made in FranceFor responsible offices

The construction sector is one of the main contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Among other things, it contributes to 23% of air pollution. It is also one of the largest users of resources, half of which are non-renewable.
That's why since our inception in 2018, every decision we make is carefully considered to reduce our carbon footprint, from design to manufacturing of Islands.

A virtuous company

Since its creation, Work With Island is committed to the made in France concept in order to support local employment. Every day, our teams work hard to design eco-designed acoustic cabins and establish new partnerships with French factories.

Why did we choose
to produce in France?

From the origin of our materials to the final assembly, all the production is local, committed to the preservation of jobs and know-how in our regions. This 100% French production allows us to limit transportation costs while providing quality garments.

The manufacturing steps are indeed taken care of by different partners spread all over the territory, allowing us to benefit from an unparalleled know-how. Our materials are sourced in Pas-de-Calais and Landes. And in Vendée, our factory, certified "Origine France Garantie", manufactures the Island cabins. Its expertise ensures a local and committed production for the well-being of all.

Manufacturing in France and in a short circuit also allows the creation of many jobs. No less than 50 people are employed in the manufacture of our soundproof booths.

A fair price

By focusing on the product and the people who make it, we choose to devote our largest expense item to labor. Our objective: to allow each actor in the chain to be fairly compensated. We want to show that being fair does not prevent us from building a competitive and profitable industrial model.

Delivery in kit

Our kit design allows us to reduce the storage area, to deliver flat packed more easily and to optimize the number of cabins transported in a truck. Moreover, since our products are manufactured in France, it allows us to shorten our delivery routes and thus limit our carbon footprint.

Recycled and sustainable materials

We are committed to helping preserve the environment and this determines many of our choices. The wood we use to manufacture our cabins comes from sustainable forests.
For the acoustics, we have chosen Métisse, a biosourced insulating material that has almost no ecological impact because it contains 100% recycled fibers.

Why is the Métisse made of jeans?

Jeans are the most worn garment in the world but also one of the most polluting. Indeed, a pair of jeans requires hundreds of liters of water, pesticides, dyes, powerful detergents and millions of kilometers of transport.

To reduce the ecological impact of jeans, our partner, Le Relais, has decided to recycle them into insulating materials called Métisse. If the latter is widely used by real estate developers it is because it insulates against cold and heat. But if Work With Island chose it, it is for its exceptional acoustic properties.
Today, 40 recycled jeans are used to manufacture the insulation for an Island SOLO.

What is the environmental impact of our cabins?

Work With Island uses the Waro platform to measure the environmental impact of its acoustic cabins. This approach analyzes all stages of our cabin's cycle. It takes into account all the environmental impacts produced at each stage: from the extraction of raw materials, through transportation to the end of its life. Thanks to this tool, we know that our Island Solo cabin emits 494.9 kg of CO2 over its entire life cycle, the equivalent of 2,564 km by car. By comparison, a cabin that is not eco-designed emits the equivalent of 5,724 km by car. Our engineers work daily on the eco-design of our products in order to reduce their impact as much as possible.
