    EFG Kite, sound-absorbing wall screen for open offices

    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 is designed by EFG Design Team, headed by Marianne Dahl.

    EFG Tab S, a brand new sound absorbing office screen

    A healthy sound environment is vital to a well-functioning office. However, every room calls for it´s own solution. EFG now present a new acoustic screen in three different designs, EFG Tab S, for a flexible and adaptable solution.

    During a typical day at the office, we need to both cooperate with others, and work undisturbed," says Marianne Dahl, Manager of Product Development at EFG European Furniture Group. "Therefore, we as manufacturers must offer quality products for creating private spaces and for controlling sound in open places”.

    EFG now introduces a family of upholstered, acoustic office screens, EFG Tab S, with sound-absorbing properties. The screen is available as a traditional desktop screen, a floor screen and a wall-mounted screen. The floor screen can be stand-alone or linked, to create separate work or meeting places in open plan offices.

    EFG Tab S is designed by EFG Design Team headed by Marianne Dahl.

    EFG Tab S is available as BimObject.

    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 where space is limited.

    "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 understated, and can be modelled in various setups, making EFG Mingle easy to specify for an array of environments.

    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 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 family of EFG Woods chairs.

    EFG Mingle is available as BimObject.

    Let´s Create: Interior Designers´ Chicago Challenge

    Release #1: Basversionen

    Förvaringssystemet EFG Create blev snabbt en favorit i kontorsvärlden. Nu lanseras steg två i form av soffor som ger närmast gränslösa möjligheter att skapa verkligt flexibla kontorsmiljöer.

    Med både förvaring, sittmöbler och rumsavdelare i samma system kan kontoret växa och förändras smartare än någonsin.


    --

    Den arbetsplats som kallas kontor förändras i rasande takt. Digitalisering, flexibilitet och image är drivande krafter samtidigt som gränsen mellan arbete och hem blir alltmer diffus. Detta ställer helt nya krav på arbetsplatsens inredning. EFG Create är ett system som slår flera flugor i en smäll.

    Alla som lekt med Lego förstår intuitivt poängen med EFG Create. Man bygger som man vill och känner för. Högt, brett, lågt, vinklat eller rakt. Samtliga moduler har måttet 380 millimeter på både höjd och djup. Med kuben som grund utformar man sitt system efter hur man vill jobba och vilket uttryck man vill skapa. Inga skruvdragare eller särskilda nycklar behövs för att åstadkomma en personlig lösning.

    Nya EFG Create Seating är lösningen för en elegant, lättplacerad och komfortabel sittplats för arbete, möten eller mat i moderna kontorsmiljöer. Den är designad för att smidigt kombineras med förvaring samtidigt som den fungerar bra på egen hand. De flexibla modulerna konfigureras enkelt från små till stora mötesplatser allt efter hur behoven skiftar.

    EFG Create Seating erbjuds i ett antal färdiga konfigurationer men kan även beställas som enskilda moduler. Med elva standardfärger på ben och stativ och sex olika bordsytor ges stora möjligheter till variation i uttrycket. Samtliga EFG Create-produkter är miljövänligt och hållbart producerade och motsvarar Svanens kriterier.

    EFG Create Seating är skapad av Jonas Forsman som är inne på sitt tredje år som designer för EFG European Furniture Group.

    -Jonas design kombinerar funktionalitet och nyskapande på ett sätt som är mycket värdefullt när kontoret som arbetsplats är i så stark förändring, säger Marianne Dahl som är Produktutvecklingschef på EFG European Furniture Group.

    Samtidigt med de nya EFG Create Seating-produkterna lanseras två kompletterande produkter i form av det lilla eleganta bordet EFG Navi och den flexibla pallen SAVO Joi som bägge fungerar utmärkt tillsammans med EFG Create.

    EFG Create Seating October 2016

    How do you measure success? For designer Jonas Forsman it may be expressed as 380 millimeters, the basic dimension for his storage system EFG Create, which has quickly become a favorite in the office world.

    The concept is now taken further in the form of sofas, offering nearly limitless possibilities to create truly flexible office environments. With both storage, seating and room dividers in the same system, the office can grow and change smarter than ever.


    Those who have played with Lego will intuitively understand the beauty of EFG Create. You assemble it just as you want and feel like. High, wide, low, angled or straight. No specific screwdrivers or keys are needed. All modules measure 380 millimeters in height and depth. With the cube as the basic design form the system can be adapted to reflect how you want to work and the image of your office.

    EFG Create Seating was presented to the industry at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in February, where it constituted the core of EFG's large booth. Since then, Jonas Forsman has worked further to refine the products now placed on the market.

    -With storage and seating in place, the base is laid for more products. I can see screen walls, space dividers, more storage variants, more cases, boxes, perhaps more removable storage, says Jonas.

    The new EFG Create Seating range is the solution for a stylish, easy to place and comfortable seating solution for work, meetings or meals in the modern office environment. The couch is composed of a metal base and an upholstered seat. Jonas has devoted special attention to the upholstery, and discussed the level of detail directly with the producer to define the right seams and angles.

    -I wanted the fabric in as few parts as possible, but also to get the stitches to work as a decoration of the sofa. A seemingly simple detail that has become common theme in the product, explains Jonas who with EFG Create Seating delivers his second major project for EFG.

    The easiest way to describe Jonas’ approach to design is to let Marcel Wanders do it. Here’s what the Dutch master said in a Frame interview in 2015:

    ”It makes sense to work on smart, functional objects with new features. That’s how he thinks. It’s what he wakes up for in the morning. He wants to have smart ideas – not just make something beautiful.”

    -I don’t just draw ideas freely from the air, there has to be a practical challenge. Above all, it must be possible to manufacture the product in a good way. My design is realistic while pushing the boundaries as much as possible, says Jonas who after his training in engineering design at Chalmers had a flying start with products that have spread throughout the design world with its ingenious simplicity. Jonas has been awarded the Red Dot on several occasions and also the Design S for their products.

    EFG Create Seating is offered in a number of pre-configurations, but can also be ordered as individual modules. Eleven standard colors on the legs and stand and six different table surfaces give great opportunities for variation in style and look. All EFG Create products are environmentally friendly and sustainably produced.

    EFG product news october 2016

    The storage system EFG Create quickly became a favorite in the office world. The concept is now taken further in the form of sofas, offering nearly limitless possibilities to create truly flexible office environments.

    With both storage, seating and room dividers in the same system, the office can grow and change smarter than ever.



    The workplace commonly known as the office is changing rapidly. Digitalization, flexibility and image are the driving forces while the line between work and home is becoming increasingly blurred. This puts new demands on workplace furnishings. EFG Create is a system that allows you to hit several birds with one stone.

    Those who have played with Lego will intuitively understand the beauty of EFG Create. You assemble it just as you want and feel like. High, wide, low, angled or straight. All modules measure 380 millimeters in height and depth. With the cube as the basic design form the system can be adapted to reflect how you want to work and the expression you want to create. No specific screwdrivers or keys are needed to create a personal solution.

    The new EFG Create Seating range is the solution for a stylish, easy to place and comfortable seating solution for work, meetings or meals in the modern office environment. It is designed to be seamlessly combined with storage while it also works fine on its own. The flexible modules are easily configured from small to large depending on how needs change at the workplace.

    EFG Create Seating is offered in a number of pre-configurations, but can also be ordered as individual modules. Eleven standard colors on the legs and stand and six different table surfaces give great opportunities for variation in style and look. All EFG Create products are environmentally friendly and sustainably produced corresponding to the Nordic Eco label criteria.

    EFG Create Seating is created by Jonas Forsman, now on in his third year as a designer for EFG European Furniture Group.

    -Jonas’ design combines functionality and innovativeness in a way that is very valuable when the office workplace is undergoing massive changes, says Marianne Dahl, Design Manager at EFG European Furniture Group.

    Simultaneously with the new EFG Create Seating products two complementary products are launched in the form of small, elegant table EFG Navi and the flexible pallet SAVO Joi that both works great with EFG Create.

    Emerging trends for the workplace from Clerkenwell Design Week

    Emerging trends for the workplace from Clerkenwell Design Week


    Clerkenwell Design week 2016 did not disappoint- a three day celebration of design driven wall to wall creativity.
     
    It was great to see the industry's response to the launch of our latest lounge chair Woods Club and our modular storage solution EFG Create. To find out more about the emerging trends making an impact at this years’ show download our trend report.
    Here is a quick roundup of our top 3.
     
    1. The topic on the forefront this year was ‘biophilic design’ the craft of bringing the outdoors in. Some took this quite literally, making for thought provoking displays that blurred the boundaries and truly transformed spaces.
     
    2. The simple shapes and hues of Scandi’ design mixed with flecks of coppers, golds and brass accessories were plentiful, making for elegant and stylish displays throughout Clerkenwell this year.
     

    3. Innovation was another key player - with many sectors within the industry showcasing visions of our future environments and behaviours. A particular favourite was Benjamin Hurbert’s GO, a 3D printed wheelchair shaped to perfectly complement its user – a design concept we champion.

    An inspirational week for workplace interiors and design, thanks to everyone who visited our stand and shared their appreciation for our media wall installation. Download the full trend report here.
