Room B was formed in 2009, when founder Brian Buchik decided to turn his passion for design and architecture towards the everyday products for the home and contract markets. The design and manufacturing company, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, strives to offer good design that is timeless. They believe that good design is all encompassing: creating products that not only look good, but are also practical, affordable, and responsible.
As a young company, Room B maintains that "every little bit matters", undertaking positive approaches early on to try to lower emissions, conserve energy and reduce waste. Designing stackable chairs, for example, allows the company to better utilize shipping space, reducing the amount of transportation required, reducing emissions and creating less packaging material. Room B has also adopted the practice of using interchangeable parts in some of their designs, reducing production times, energy and material waste. All products are made in Canada, with an eye toward continually greening the business and production.
