The period prior to all trade fairs is always creative and intense,
and this year is no exception. Rarely are you more conscious of time
than when the big countdown starts. We have tried starting earlier
we do that every year only to discover that things nonetheless
pile up towards the end. Maybe it's all part of the process
maybe we are constantly raising the bar.
It is a great privilege in design management work to get to collaborate
with two designers who are so young and 100% dedicated as Fredrik Mattson
and Stefan Borselius. They leave nothing to chance they are always
waiting in the wings and never hesitate to step in and complete things
if necessary. They lovingly tend their work/children from conception
to birth and onward into the rearing stage...
This year we have continued to work with putting furniture into production
that we appreciate ourselves and believe has a justifiable position
on the market. In the search for the new and the unexpected, what is
left to discover is curiosity and pleasure - our most powerful impetuses.
For us a new product is not new simply because it is new. To be worthy
of being described as new it must demonstrate an innovative approach
to the finishing process, production technique, material, design or
This year we have three new products, one rekindled love affair and
one introduction with the by-line "to be continued".
We proudly present:
Design: Fredrik Mattson 2OO5
With the East as resistance and inspiration we are forced to crack new
codes and analyse the entire finishing process from tree to seat and
from ore to leg all to enable qualitative production at reasonable
prices within our country's borders - Made in Sweden!

In a time when we are pulling down existing barriers to promote encounters
and a sense of community, a new need for separation is soon created.
A modern wing chair in moulded felt, with the material in the seat rim
pressed to its limit and a stand of chrome-plated steel. Possibility
of adding a cover/visor in moulded felt with a Plexiglass front.
A little oasis amidst the chaos.

When the body follows the thought and not the design new lines can create
design that takes account of the body. A sofa system that works just
as well as a free-standing armchair. A piece of furniture on which you
can sit, hang, lie, climb or get close to your loved one all
depending on how you feel! Steel and wood frame, moulded polyurethane,

Since the technology is available but has to be adapted to its purpose,
it is sometimes also the case that the purpose must be adapted to the
technology to be continued! A little café stool, the idea
for which was scribbled down on a notepad in Tokyo in October 2003,
shown in Milan in 2004 where the top part of the stool was dipped in
fluid ice-bed, an Abcite treatment of the steel that allows for use
both indoors and out
the underside of the stool is in stainless
