In 2021, we celebrate our 140th anniversary as a pioneer of progressive Nordic design. Since 1881, we’ve been dedicated to inspiring better living. For nearly a century and a half, our core set of values have guided us in creating design that is balanced, essential and progressive.
Our values are reflected in everything we do. We remain true to what matters: the essential.
Essential now and in the future
Focus on the essential
In our restless world filled with distractions, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Focusing lets us remove the excess and create clarity by discovering the essential. Focusing on the essential helps us keep connected to who we are in the ever-changing nature of life.
Essential from generation to generation
Focusing on the essential means a continued commitment to a sustainable future. We will remain faithful to our heritage and respect the qualities that make our design timeless, lasting and treasured from generation to generation.
Collaborating with creative visionaries helps us continue to build on the knowledge handed down us from the legendary designers and master craftspeople that helped build our global reputation.
The 140th anniversary collection
Our Anniversary Collection features essential pieces that capture the very essence of our 140-year design history. The collection is brought to life with a radiant amethyst shade that changes colour according to the light while a new natural dark grey adds balanced tranquility.
