Buyback and remanufacturing of furniture

Desko has completely focused their business model and operations to be more circular through remanufacturing. Unlike the traditional linear business model of extracting resources, making and selling furniture, and letting them be disposed of as waste, Desko uses a three-tier buyback scheme. Desko furniture that gets sold is brought back, remanufactured, and resold up to three times, extending its useful life and providing more income for the company for the same amount of desks produced
