About / The Company

The Company

Our factory lies in the heart of Sweden in Tibro, a community with a long and celebrated handicraft tradition. Since 1990, we have worked here to create unique furniture that contributes to better meetings between people.

Better meetings, a better world

We are convinced that design can contribute to a peaceful mind and increase our creativity which leads to better meetings between people. That is why we observe how habits change and together with architects and designers from different parts of the world, we exchange ideas and experiences in order to create unique furniture.

To achieve a combination of functionality and beauty, we explore new materials and techniques with methods that are environmentally, socially and financially sustainable. We call this way of developing, producing and thinking about design, the Offecct Lifecircle.
