    EFG at Salone Del Mobile in Milan 2019

    Swedish Design Moves celebrate the richness of Swedish Design in “HEMMA – gone wild”

    EFG will exhibit at the 2019 Salone Del Mobile in Milan, the most influential furniture fair in the world. “We are delighted to have been selected by Swedish Design Moves to be part of their celebration of Swedish design in everyday life” says Marianne Dahl, head of product development at EFG. “This is all thanks to EFG´s many years of focused co-operation with top designers”.

    The products that will be showcased in Milan by EFG are the very latest concepts by Jonas Forsman, not yet in production. Jonas Forsman has designed several popular furniture series for EFG, most notably the “Create” range of modular, sustainable seating and storage.

    At 2018’s Salone Del Mobile, visitors were invited by Swedish Design Moves to experience scenes from Swedish everyday life - This was “HEMMA - stories of home”. For this year’s Salone, Hemma is back with a new chapter called “HEMMA gone wild”! “This Year we look at Hemma – Home, as  a place where wild nature and unidentified matter are taking over” say exhibition architects Joyn Studio. The installation is based on the idea of the home as a playing field, with rooms that describe our relationship with home.

     “HEMMA gone wild” will take place in the heart of Brera Design District.

    Input interiör acquires EFG

     – A strategically important deal that increases our presence in the Nordic region, says Sune Lundqvist, CEO of Input interiör.

    Input interiör completed their first international establishment in Finland last year. With the acquisition of EFG, Input interiör is now also establishing itself in Norway and Denmark.

    EFG is a leading player with an interior solutions operation of 23 showrooms in the Nordic region as well as the EFG and SAVO brands.

    – With the acquisition, EFG’s interior solutions operation will become part of the Input interiör group and will thus become an interior design supplier exclusively, with access to new services and the widest range in the market. The manufacturing will have a stronger position to grow into a fully independent operation, says Marcus Westdahl, CEO of EFG.

    Input interiör foresees major advantages with the deal.

    – We have access to a new platform in Norway and Denmark while our operations in Sweden and Finland are being strengthened with additional skilled staff. We will also have access to two strong brands which will develop even faster separately, says Mille Milehem, COO of Input interiör.

    The deal is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2018.

    EFG Archie – organic shape to suit the human body

    EFG Archie – organic shape to suit the human body

    The smooth, organic shape of EFG´s new chair EFG Archie is inspired by the human body, both in design and function. “Archie is not only an aesthetically appealing chair”, says designer Carl Öjerstam. “It is a chair that gives support to sitters of all sizes, all day long. To achieve this in such a minimalist chair, you need to go further than simply the look – you need to pay careful attention to different aspects of user ergonomics. There are thousands of chairs out there, but not all of them get the comfort right – so that is what we set out to do”.

    “The process of developing EFG Archie has been long, and sometimes difficult” says Marianne Dahl, head of the EFG design team, “but it´s worth it now that we see the end result”. One challenge has been finding the perfect compound. “The material that we are now using for Archie is unique, and can not be found in any other chair on the market” says Marianne Dahl. “It is extremely flexible, highly durable, and it allows us to give Archie a finish that other materials don´t achieve. The pure compound also has a positive impact on recycling at the end of the product life span”.

    EFG Archie offers a versatile and playful design perspective on an everyday item. EFG Archie comes in five different models, to suit every need, with both metal and wooden legs. The metal legs come in a range of colours. The basic plastic shell has contrasting surfaces, both soft matte and high-gloss. The upholstered variant of Archie can also be designed with contrasting colours of fabric if desired. Alltogether EFG Archie offers hundreds of possible variants of expression.

    “EFG Archie is a fantastic chair”, says Craig Howarth, Commercial Director, “it embodies all the design goals of EFG, and the values of a modern workplace”.

    EFG Kite – an elegant sound absorbing wall screen

    EFG continue the acoustics focus with the launch of a new wall-mounted sound absorbing screen: EFG Kite. Expressive, flexible and easy to use, EFG Kite is the ideal choice for a modern, open-plan office or lounge space.

    ”The purpose of EFG Kite is to offer a sound-absorbing screen that combines function with good design”, says Johan Björkman, product manager at EFG.

    The name ”EFG Kite” is inspired by the products´ design, and hints that there is lots of room for playfulness. The screen itself comes as a square or a rectangle in different sizes, as well as an L-shaped screen. The models can be combined to create a personal solution. The screen is also upholstered in one-or two colours of fabric.
    ”EFG Kite is very easy to mount” continues Johan Björkman, ”a fact that will save time both for our staff and for customers”. ”Rearranging the office as needs change over time also becomes much easier”.
    EFG Kite Wall is designed by EFG Design Team, headed by Marianne Dahl.

EFG Mingle – clever, compact, comfortable

A flexible, modular, compact, yet comfortable sofa system - EFG Mingle is this autumn´s soft seating product from EFG. Designed by KnudsenBergHindenes for those who want to create elegant and comfortable seating on a small surface.

"A high level of comfort, while taking up as little space as possible has been the main focus of the development process," explains Steinar Hindenes. "The look of EFG Mingle is minimalist, with some selected details that give the sofa a character of its own." Steinar Hindenes describes the design as somewhat subdued, which allows EFG Mingle fit in almost anywhere. It can also be modeled in many various setups, which is important for a module-based program.

EFG Mingle was presented as a prototype at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017. The design has been refined during the year, and the sofa is now being launched as a complete sofa system with seating modules in various sizes and styles, as well as accessories and table modules.

"EFG Mingle is a comfortable, functional and stylish sofa that takes up a minimum of valuable office space,” says Johan Björkman, Product Manager. "We have strived for efficiency, especially in functionality, but also from other perspectives that are important to our customer; floor space, transport and materials ". “We look forward to presenting the full EFG Mingle range to our customers!”.

EFG Mingle Sofa can easily be adapted to the demands of a modern and changing environment and is suitable for most public environments; offices, reception areas, schools and healthcare. The modules can be varied in an infinite number of combinations of rounded and straight shapes and can, if desired, form closed spaces, open spaces, small spaces and large spaces – there is a “Mingle” for every need.

KudsenBergHindenes have designed EFG Mingle, and are also the designers of the popular EFG chair EFG Woods.
