Change and evolution is inevitable. Today, the boundary between workspace and home is blurred. Offices are integrating home and hospitality elements in the workplace landscape, and homes now have office components as our ways of working has become more fluid and mobile, and less conventional.
Furthermore, people are more and more confident in making their own aesthetic and ergonomic choices. Layering in progress in science and technology, the change only escalates. At Bulo, we welcome change as a challenge to broaden our own design horizons and as a force to inspire innovation.
Creation, innovation and product development are the driving forces. With timeless designs: both in terms of design and use of materials, products will last for generations. With an own team of product developers and collaborations with external designers which provides a multitude of approaches.
We build long-term sustainable relationships with (interior)architects as our partner because of their role as a consultant in many projects. Even more, many of our collections are designed by architects. Together we use the same design language in the creation of our furniture, which delivers a high architectural quality.
Walter B. introduced ‘Bulosophy’, a business ethic based on trust, open communication and the principle that people are the center. Before there was question of “mission statement, values and stakeholders”, these were already applied in the dealings with customers, employees, designers and architects and with the suppliers.
Bulo offers more than the fulfillment of functional, rational and ergonomic requirements. We add subjective and emotional values to the specifications of its products, such as beauty, fun content, personality, respect for architecture… Bulo is an atypical player on the market that surprises with products with a “twist”.
Good design is made with know-how and respects nature by giving preference to honest materials such as veneer. Therefore, improving quality (of work and life) is present in every step of the process. By carefully selecting sustainable materials, contemporary design, the ‘made in Belgium’ aspect and the after sales service.
Bulo endorses the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) formally adopted by the United Nations in 2015. An action plan to free humanity from poverty and put the planet back on track towards sustainability. These goals reflect three dimensions of sustainable development: economy, ecology and the social aspect.
With an own design department (interior architects, project designers and customization), Bulo offers total solutions and thinks along in the long term by responding to specific requirements. With new working concepts and optimal work environments, Bulo gives shape to its socio-economic role: creating a better way of working and living.
