We at Gärsnäs push the limits of what is possible in the interaction between craftsmanship, industry and designers.木製品的裁縫技術大師二人組: Färg & Blanche，
這是用革命性的木製裁縫技術所製成，Färg & Blanche發明了木製品的裁縫原理，這包含傢俱設計部件和部件或材料的縫合，因此，減少了可觀的膠水使用。這花了設計師數百小時坐在縫紉機旁，去發現最好的解決方案，縫紉看起來很簡單，只有針和線，但要完成最終的原理，必須要把縫紉轉變成木製品可用的技術，它就像是做一個模具，過程可以是非常的長，但當北歐家具模具被完成，幾乎所有的工作也被完成。
Färg & Blanche: masters of wood tailoring Creative duo Färg & Blanche launch Julius, a new sofa and easy chair made using the revolutionary technique of wood tailoring. Färg & Blanche have invented and developed the concept of wood tailoring, which involves the sewing together of a piece of furniture and a dramatic reduction in the use of glue.
“It has taken us hundreds of hours sitting by the sewing machine to find the best solutions. It looks so easy, just needle and thread, but to achieve the ultimate method we really had to turn the technique of wood tailoring inside out. It’s similar to making a mould: the process can be extremely long, but when it’s finally fixed, then most of the work is done,” says Färg & Blanche.
Hedwig設計理念受到瑞典有名的傢俱生產者Axel Einar Hjorth建築師所啟發，他在1920 ~ 1930年間是Nordiska Kompaniet的首席建築師，且也是高品質傢俱設計的設計師。Hedwig就如同Axel Einar Hjorth作品般，使用木框概念，並搭配拉緊的皮革或是布處理椅子，這個簡單的結構裡面也隱藏了許多工藝在裡面。
David Ericsson renews his set of seating furniture with Hedwig Last year’s success, the Madonna chair, is followed up this year by David Ericsson’s new easy chair: Hedwig. The point of departure is a comfortable easy chair made with exquisite craftsmanship. Hedwig is also a homage to the designer’s wife, who likes to read and drink tea. David Ericsson has placed great emphasis on the easy chair being a joy to sit in and the sculptured, rounded armrests are just the right size for a cup of tea.
David Ericsson has been inspired by the history of Swedish furniture making, in particular Axel Einar Hjorth, chief architect at Nordiska Kompaniet in the 1920s and 30s, and the designer of exceedingly high-quality furniture. Just like many of Axel Einar Hjorth’s models, Hedwig is constructed using a wooden frame with stretched leather or alternatively canvas. The deceptively simple construction belies the genuine craftsmanship and skill involved.
Day Lite 和 Day High
此系列產品可以是標準的設定，也可以是富有變化的組合；有小巧Day Lite，它可以連接在一起，或是堆疊，或是掛起來，或是提供適合久坐、舒服度高的Day High；因此，Day系列產品提供了現代辦公室傢俱設計的所有需求。
Day family adds Day Lite and Day High. Pierre Sindre expands his popular office series, Day, with another two chairs: Day Lite and Day High. The Day series is both sober and rich in variation. With the slimline auditorium chair, Day Lite, which is connectable, stackable and hangable, and Day High, whose high back offers extra comfort during long sittings, the Day series covers the entire spectrum of the modern office.
POP series expanded and refined. Patrik Bengtsson and Pierre Sindre have refined their POP series and taken it to new heights. Not only has POP been enriched with an accompanying easy chair, which like the sofa is available with a low, medium or high back, but the entire series has been given a new sophisticated look and new functionality. They found inspiration from early 70s silk scarfs by Hermès and the timeless rattan handbags by saddle maker Palmgrens. The high backrests create a partition effect and are made of rattan finished with a strong leather edge. Another new feature is that the upholstery is removable. The entire series exudes exclusivity and thorough quality, sending strong signals about durability and a beautiful patina.
