Green design concept is a very interesting topic to be discussed, because the demands of time getting open our eyes to the importance of preserving nature and the resources diminishing. No exception in the world of furniture and interior design. Especially because Indonesia was in the equatorial region is rich in sunshine, natural resources and abundant crops. Natural resources such as wood, bamboo and rattan furniture that produces a variety of very interesting characteristic equatorial regions.

Design of furniture such as beds or beds for example, is an integral part of the whole design of the home spaces. If the concepts we are familiar with green design concepts and energy-efficient space to be implemented in a tropical design, we also know that furniture design ‘green’ too.
