Diagonal Play

Client: Martela

Diagonal Play is an extension of the original Diagonal concept.

Diagonal Play consists of four bench elements that can be placed as desired. These bench elements are ideal for corridors, and other areas where a limited amount of space is available. Each element consists of two separate parts, which can be upholstered in different fabrics. Also one of the parts can be ordered slightly higher than the others enabling short term laptop work.

 

Diagonal

Client: Martela

Diagonal is an innovative combination of sofa and space divider for public indoor spaces. It was designed to meet the needs of modern offices and waiting areas demanding flexibility and privacy.

Diagonal consists of two basic elements: a padded seat and a screen that can be placed as desired in the diagonal grooves. Although there are only two elements, they can be combined in almost endless ways. By using as a single module or combining several of the elements, Diagonal becomes a relaxed setting for small meetings, a private corner for important phone calls or a stylish lobby landscape. 

 

Oasis

Client: Peter Pepper

Oasis organic design derives from the fantastic shapes created in the sand on a windy day. It is as much an inspiring sculpture as an inviting functional seat. Being a multi-sided seat, seating up to 8-10 people, it becomes a natural centerpiece and meeting-point for both interaction and contemplation. Oasis can be used indoor and outdoor, either solo or in numbers to create intresting compositions for meeting-points and waiting areas. 

Being made out of vacuum formed ABS plastic cap sheet over recycled utility base the bench is 100% recyclable, UV/weather proof, fire retardant and very tough against damage and heavy usage.

 

Dent

Client: Blå Station

The story of Dent chair started with the idea of trying to achieve the impossible: to mould a double-curved 3D surface out of regular veneer.

We have had many years’ experience of designing chairs using traditional plywood moulding techniques, always trying to extend the boundaries of what is possible without “cheating” by using expensive 3D veneer. With Dent we decided to be even bolder, by taking a step beyond where we have already been.

Despite its rough appearance, Dent is a comfortable multi-purpose chair - and it will grow into a family of individuals with various finishes and leg bases.

 

NESSO

Client: LUNDBERGS MÖBLER

With the Nesso table series, we started off with the classic archetypal wooden table with corner legs and the goal of minimizing the material without sacrificing stability. We wanted to create a series of tables that expresses lightness and elegance, that with few and well thought out parts and joints is both stable and durable despite its minimalist expression.


Nesso comes in different heights and sizes and will be able to fit into almost any environ- ment; from canteens and schools to offices and restaurants. Nesso can be easily linked together using the built-in fitting if you want to create longer tables or other fixed table formations.

 

Silenci

Client: de Nord

Silenci was born from the idea to refine the classical stackable wooden chair and make it into a light, modern and competitive product with added functions and comfort.

Silenci brings together two materials in a sensational combo: Solid wood frame and a polyurethane back! The soft and flexible rubber-like back gives comfort and together with an acoustic sound absorbing casette hidden under the seat, noise are reduced to accomodate public areas like schools, canteens, restaurants and bars. The Silenci family includes both a chair, barstool and a table with various bases.

 

SWAVE

CLIENT: DE NORD

Swave is all about extreme comfort. The design takes fully advantage of what's possible when pushing plywood-molding to the limit. Because of the advanced molded back, Swave is a very ergonomic chair with good comfort and a great lumbar support.

With a thin 8 mm shell and two different stackable bases, plus the companion of a barstool, the Swave family is both light and functional, which makes it suitable for most domestic and public spaces.

 

Magnifik

Client: IKEA

The energy-saving Induction-heated stove tops are dramatically increasing in the world, so the tools for cooking are also in for a change. One major new change with induction heat is that all pots and pans need to be made with a magnetic metal bottom in order to work and produce heat.

Magnifik is a pot-stand in durable safegrip-heat resistant silicone with 5 embedded neodyme magnets. It protects your tabletops from hot pots and pans and give a sturdy, solid and safe placement on any tabletop. It can be vertically stored on most stove-fronts or fridge-doors.

 

Risto

Client: Mitab

The idea with Risto was to develop an exclusive and comfortable but affordable chair for offices, conferencing and dining, utilizing Mitab's automated metal production line and their skillful craftmanship in upholstery. Risto is built around a slim but solid steel-tube frame with a smoothly curved molded plywood seat - and a back that has been dressed with a fitted and high-tensioned mesh for extraordinary support and comfort for longer sitting.

A big effort has been put into the design of the upholstery which comes with tailored washable velcro-attached fabric-covers for seat and back as standard.

o4i Design Studio was founded in 2005 by MFA Senior Design Partners Henrik Kjellberg and Jon Lindström, who first met while studying at Konstfack University College of Arts Craft and Design in Stockholm, Sweden 1996. Over the coming years the duo collaborated in various furniture projects and their intensified collaboration urged them to ultimately start up their own design consultancy: o4i (Short for: office for ideas).

Henrik Kjellberg and Jon Lindström, the founders of o4i.

"We have a multidisciplinary approach to product design based on modern industrial parameters in the context of responsible mass production. We are driven by a curiosity for new technology, behaviours, materials and processes and find as much joy in exploring the possibilities of improvement within given strict limitations as we do in seeking the solutions that challenge what's expected. We believe in observation, conversation and collaboration. In the design process we believe 1 + 1 = 3."

The duo renders a solid experience through earlier studies and work in both furniture design, industrial design and architecture in Stockholm, Oslo and New York. Now being based in Stockholm, Sweden, the studio focuses on contemporary public and domestic furniture and develops unique concepts for an international market. Clients include IKEA, Blå Station, Gärsnäs, David Design, de Nord, Lappset, Lundbergs Möbler, Maze Interior, Mitab (Sweden), Fritz Hansen (Denmark), Martela (Finland), Plycollection (Latvia), EQ3 (Canada), Dune NY and Peter Pepper (USA).   

 

Their work has received several awards such as IDA International Design Awards 2007 (USA), Red Dot Award 2005 (Germany), Good Design Award 2005 (USA), I.D Magazine Destinction Award 2001 and 2005 (USA),  Exellent Swedish Design Award 2000 (Sweden), Forsnas Prize 1997 (Sweden) German Design Prize Nomenee 2006 (Germany) and a double ADEX Platinum Award 2007 (USA).
