Independent design, product development and manufacturing are at the heart of our business. It is through meticulous care for each individual detail and complete control over the entire process that we create furniture that should last as long as the buildings in which they’re placed.
All the products in our collection are designed, developed, tested and manufactured in our development department and our factory in Tibro. Here, selected designers and architects from all over the world work closely with our product developers and craftsmen, to create new and original designs.
Our design philosophy may be global, but we achieve world-class quality by ensuring that our entire process, from development to production, takes place locally. Through local handicrafts, ideas and experiences from different cultures and environments are shaped into physical objects. We never take shortcuts and we always let our philosophy and values influence the work that we do.
As far as possible, we collaborate with local suppliers and we constantly invest in our own production facility and our knowledge to use the planet’s resources as well as possible. We must be sustainable in everything we do and continue to create groundbreaking design on the planet’s terms.
One thing is certain; In the near future, it will only be possible to own the design and functions. We all need to rethink and reuse the earth’s resources, which means only borrowing them from nature.
In order to meet our high demands, we gather knowledge from the traditional craftsmanship in Tibro and the new challenges we face every day, not least in our Offecct Lab, where we experiment and test new solutions, materials and concepts.
Offecct Lab is our forum for experimentation with new materials and the development of new ideas in order to push the boundaries for techniques and sustainable solutions forward. It is a dynamic forum where we and our partners experiment and try to make the impossible possible. Sometimes it results in a new product which becomes a part of our collection, and sometimes it remains an important new experience and knowledge.
