WHAT DO YOU MEAN WITH NORDIC?
The essence of Nordic design is all about uncluttered functionality in everyday objects, One Nordic builds on this solid foundation and applies it on 21st century needs and behaviors. We make high quality furniture and accessories designed by the absolute best Nordic designers. In addition, we offer products by interesting international designers giving their take on Nordic design.
WHY IS A GREAT WEBSITE IMPORTANT?
Online thinking is at the core of our company, with the Europe wide online store as an important channel of sales. Our online experience offers you all relevant information about the products, amazing pictures, video material, background stories about the products and naturally 24/7 availability.
DOES IT WORK WITH SELLING DESIGN FURNITURE ONLINE?
Being digital means more to us than having a great online store. We want to combine online shopping with the possibility of showing the products in their natural environment. We are building a concept where consumers can find, try, get to know and buy our products at public locations such as cafés, restaurants and hotels. The first locations to open in 2014 stay tuned. (We are looking for great places, so let us know if you have one in mind).
DO YOU WORK WITH RETAILERS?
Our products can indeed be found at the stores of the best furniture retailers around the world. Today our products are sold in over 30 counties and we are expanding our network all the time.
IS PROJECTSALES SOMETHING YOU DO?
Our products are very much suitable for projects and have been chosen by architects for offices, hotels, public spaces, bars and cafes in over 20 countries in 2013.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PRICING?
Most design furniture costs a fortune and is for this reason not accessible. We do not claim to be the cheapest, but we aim for our quality products to also be reasonably priced.
WHO ARE THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE COMPANY?
One Nordic is founded by Joel Roos functioning as the CEO. Stefan Mahlberg is running R&D and production. Creative direction is handled by Petrus Palmér. And the rest of the team is here to make sure that you can enjoy our products and a high level of service.
YOU SAY THAT YOUR FURNITURE ARE EASY TO ASSEMBLE, WHY DON'T YOU ASSEMBLE THEM FOR ME?
We make quality products, which can be shipped small and assembled easily, thanks to our patented shipping solutions. We do this because it makes transporting more ecological and cost-effective. This again means that we can keep the prices reasonable, and focus all our efforts on making the best product possible. We do want to emphasize that shipping solutions never interfere with the look and feel of the products. First and foremost we want to offer attractive and functional products you want to buy.
BUT WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY EASY?
There are no screws; no tools and no manuals are needed for the assembly, making it self-intuitive, fast and understandable and therefore we are certain that you will have no problem putting them together or taking them apart when you move.
SO YOU ARE LIKE IKEA?
We have been dubbed the luxury IKEA by the press. Something we can accept as our products do come with easy assembly solutions. Other from that, we differ quite a lot from IKEA. We are the small newcomers and rebels in the field and our prime goal is to cater customers who are looking for quality products by top designers, at reasonable prices. Our products always have a story to tell.
