pba FOR SUSTAINABILITY

AT pba ® WE BELIEVE THAT SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT DESIGN CAN BE BEAUTIFUL AND PROFITABLE AND COMMIT OURSELVES TO PROMOTE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LONG-TERM BENEFITS OF SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT DESIGN.

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AT pba IS THE PHILOSOPHY THAT IS APPLIED TO PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT TO ACHIEVE A BETTER FUTURE FOR THE HUMAN RACE THROUGH THE WISE AND LOW-VOLUME CONSUMPTION OF EARTH’S RESOURCES. OUR ROLE IS TO PROVIDE INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS THROUGH PRODUCTS.

IN ORDER TO CONSIDER SUSTAINABLE DESIGN THROUGHOUT THE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS, AT pba WE TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE ENVIRONMENT, PEOPLE, ECONOMY, AND CULTURE. EVERY NEW PRODUCT AND EVERY RE-DESIGNED PRODUCT PROCESS IS THOUGHT AND DESIGNED CONSIDERING THESE FOUR FACTORS.

FORM

THE FORM REPRESENTS THE VISUAL SHAPE OF THE PRODUCT AND IS USUALLY PERCEIVED TO BE THE MAIN ELEMENT OF THE DESIGN. AT pba WHEN WE DESIGN A PRODUCT WE QUESTION HOW WILL THE SHAPE AFFECT ENERGY CONSUMPTION, HOW WILL THE SIZE AFFECT THE PACKAGING AND THE TRANSPORTATION COSTS.

FUNCTION AND USABILITY

THE FUNCTION AND USABILITY OF THE PRODUCT CONTRIBUTE TO ITS SUSTAINABILITY IN AN INDIRECT WAY, AS THEY HELP USERS USE THE PRODUCT MORE EASILY IN LESS TIME AND WITH LESS ENERGY CONSUMPTION. PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO KEEP HARD-TO-USE PRODUCTS, SO USABLE PRODUCTS CAN ENSURE LESS WASTE AND THROWAWAYS.

COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS

FOR MANY OF TODAY’S SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS, COST IS ONE OF THE KEY BARRIERS THAT PREVENTS MANY USERS FROM MAKING THE SWITCH FROM THEIR DEPENDENCE ON NON-SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS. THEREFORE, AT pba WE ARE FOCUSED ON CONTROLLING AND POSSIBLY REDUCING THE COST OF SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS.

MATERIALS AND RECYCLING

MATERIALS PLAY AN ESSENTIAL ROLE IN SUSTAINABLE DESIGN. pba PRODUCTS ARE MAINLY PRODUCED WITH RECYCLABLE MATERIAL AND DESIGNED TO BE EASILY DISASSEMBLED TO BE RECYCLED. 

DURABLE DESIGN SOLUTIONS

IN ORDER TO REACH ZERO WASTE, PRODUCTS HAVE TO EITHER BE DURABLE ENOUGH TO LAST FOR A LONG TIME OR BE FULLY RECYCLED AND TRANSFORMED COMPLETELY INTO NEW PRODUCTS. AT pba WE ARE COMMITTED SINCE THE CONCEPT DESIGN PHASE TO DESIGN DURABLE AND RECYCLABLE PRODUCTS
