The Miinus is a kitchen of ecological principle that remains at the heart of its values: durability, modifiability, non-toxicity, easy-care, re-use and recyclability of materials. Traditionally used furniture boards have been completely eliminated from a Miinus kitchen and replaced by more ecological alternatives.
The bioframe structure has been made of biocomposite by injection molding. Its ingenious properties and details provide permanence, durability, safety, lightness, cleanliness, freshness and modifiability in the same package. Our bioframe is the most innovative invention in the global furniture industry for decades and has been chosen for a number of major construction projects that respect environmental values.
Miinus is always artfully trendy
Annually changing trends do not upset the Miinus- not even physically, since there’s no need to detach the bioframe from the whole when you want a change, unless you want to change the place or size of a cabinet. The very durable bioframe is modifiable in terms of content and appearance. On the other hand, product development of the Miinus is constantly influenced by megatrends.
There is one and only one kitchen brand that, based on thorough research and carbon footprint calculations, can be called an ecological kitchen. This kitchen has been developed in Finland and is the Puustelli Miinus kitchen. For ecological reasons, widely-used furniture materials have been removed or minused.
Puustelli spent no less than four years on development work to create an ecological kitchen. The key ambition was to reduce the carbon footprint in furniture manufacture, taking into account the entire lifecycle of the furniture.
The Miinus kitchen is the perfected outcome of sustainable development and is based on completely different starting points and values than its counterparts. The ambition was to create the most ecological and carbon neutral, sustainable kitchen covering the entire lifecycle of the furniture.
In 2020, we added a set-off part to our original Puustelli 2013 Natural Steps program. We offset the carbon footprint arising in the furniture manufacture of each Puustelli kitchen through concrete action by various environmental actors.
The entire innovative Puustelli Miinus kitchen furniture system, including details, has been been patented. The furniture parts, in particular the cabinet frame structures, feature a number of patented details. The holes to join the frames and to mount the hinges, mechanisms and drawer rails have been ready made in conjunction with injection molding. The Miinus furniture system is the most innovative invention in the global furniture industry for decades.
Puustelli has been Finland’s largest kitchen manufacturer and best-selling kitchen brand since back in 1983. This is probably no coincidence. Miinus kitchens are made at the same Puustelli production facilities in Harjavalta as all other Puustelli furniture. We make the most ecological material alternatives available to everyone thinking about buying a kitchen as well as the latest innovations to make household chores easier.
The Miinus Ecological Kitchen brochure features inspiring ecological kitchen concepts and kitchen design tips. You’ll get inspiring ideas of different kitchen styles, but bear in mind that each Miinus kitchen is designed exactly to your wishes.
