why we choose to use Bamboo

We particularly love Bamboo – an organic material of unsurpassed mechanical and environmental protective properties – used for millennia throughout Asia in it’s natural, & later, man-made forms.

It’s the first thing we consider when we sit down to design a piece, even before any prototypes are made or materials expended. Whether it’s for production, packaging, product lifespan or waste – we are committed to creating beautiful and functional products which will endure the test of time.

compact living at it’s best . . . 

By using this amazing material, we have been able to create our  first side-folding stair of its kind in the world, these the two unique & sustainable side-folding Bcompact Stair & Ladder.

These two groundbreaking products have unsurpassed strength, versatility & beauty, which at the same time, preserve the resources of our planet.

Creating the best living environment in the least space is why bcompact exists.
