ESTABLISHED IN 2012 BY SISTERS CILLA AND BETTE EKLUND
Our mission is to offer stand-out design pieces with a can-do attitude, designed and manufactured from start to finish in Finland. Our minimalistic collection is inspired by the rough nature of the North and includes designer furniture and home accessories for both private and public spaces. We want to put a touch of beauty and can-do attitude in your surroundings to help you create a harmonious and confident environment.
DEEPLY ROOTED IN NATURE, ARCHITECTURE, AND DESIGN
Our passion for nature originates from growing up on a farm and we still find our inspiration from the wild outdoors of the North. We love the beauty of the minimalist Nordic style, which has been an influence from the beginning of our BEdesign journey. The rugged nature of the North and time spent deep in the forests and the sea-beaten cliffs in the archipelago continue to inspire us daily. Our love for the minimalist and clean lines draws from our family heritage in architecture and design.
Already three generations ago, members of the Eklund family had a great interest in architecture and design. In the photo, Cilla and Bette Eklund's great-grandfather and architect Arne Eklund is working at his desk in Turku Cathedral in Turku, Finland. The year is 1922.
MADE IN FINLAND
We want to strengthen the position of Finnish design and know-how both in Finland and in the rest of the world. All our products are designed and manufactured in Finland, with respect to the traditions of Finnish wood and metal work. By keeping the entire manufacturing process in Finland, we can employ local professionals and thus support the local economy and the heritage of the Finnish furniture industry. Furthermore, this guarantees workmanship of the highest quality as well as safe working environments and proper wages and benefits for the employees. Many of our partners are family-owned businesses with a long history within the industry.
RESPECTFULLY AND MADE TO LAST
Not only do we aim to create beautiful and functional design pieces but we work towards creating a more sustainable way of life. We strive to make a lasting positive impression, both in your home and on this planet. We choose manufacturers who share our passion for the craft and the smallest details. We want to work with the best manufacturers committing to creating high-quality pieces with longevity.
In addition to our own collection, we offer companies product design and custom-made products. Our products are sold all over the world. In addition to our own online store, we have more than 60 retailers around the world.
BEdesing reflects a set of values that we can be proud of. We are dedicated to celebrating the beauty of life. Our biggest ambition is, and have always been, to put a touch of beauty and can-do attitude in your surroundings to help you create a harmonious and confident environment. An environment to feel comfortably you.
