THE ART OF DESIGN

Design is a passion and we use our professional skills to make things better.

We acknowledge the importance of an artistic approach when it comes to making great design. We explore shapes, materials and colours to invent new ways of design.

We care about the planet and in our everyday work, we make great efforts to create products that drives a sustainable change. This is our duty as designers and human beings.

ARDE is one of Scandinavias leading experts in furniture design. We have a unique holistic background in the furniture industry, both in design, retail and production.

In our design process we consider the whole value chain behind a product. We make designs that will work from idea, to prototype, to production - to the final product being sold and used.

To make great furniture design we believe that a "hands-on" approach is crucial. Our unique workshop facilities allows us to build and mature prototypes in-house, with high efficiency and speed.

ARDE MANIFEST

 

Creative conscience

We care about the planet. In our everyday work, we make great efforts to create products that leave a minimal environmental footprint. This is our duty as designers and human beings.

Look forward and up

In our work we challenge the boundaries of design. We search for new needs and trends. We investigate how new and existing materials can be used and combined to create new directions. We explore new form languages and we push the boundaries of manufacturing. In this creative state of mind we design products that transforms emerging human desires into immediate consumer decisions.

Realize and respond

The studio strives to understand the ever changing urbanized world we live in. We strive to meet our surroundings with an open mind to enable us to respond to changes in social and cultural behavior. The overleap between evolved user needs and industrial solutions is where great potential lies.

Designing desire

Great design needs to be beautiful. The perception of beauty relates to parameters like proportion, detail, contrast, simplicity, materiality and youthfulness. Based on experience and theoretical knowledge, we mix the ingredients to achieve the desirable.

Constructing value

Great design is constructed in a logical way. Simplicity creates value around products. We do our outmost to eliminate what’s unnecessary to identify the essential.

Usefulness

Great design is functional and has a purpose. Our work needs to improve everyday life. Sometimes innovation is minor, but still steps towards an improved user experience.
