The Red Ball is a rejuvenated version of a popular 1960′s design by Gloria Carnacia of Creative Playthings.  Kids of all ages can enjoy the classic lines of this retro-modern gem from Knu.

Knu takes its sustainable furniture-making seriously.  The company’s latest manufacturing plant utilizes energy efficient lighting and heating technologies; and all its transportation, shipping and energy consumption is offset by carbon offsets from the CarbonFund.org.

They sell on-line and they don’t mail tree-consuming, wasteful catalogs.  Raw materials come primarily from suppliers within a 50 mile radius.  Hardware contains a high percentage of recycled materials and wood components are primarily FSC certified, multi-ply birch.  Veneers are sustainably harvested and produced, Italian poplar – not rare rain forest timber.
