At MOEBE we care about good design.
We care about what we make
and care about how we make it.
From first sketch - to final product.
Designed in house
We are a small creative team involved in all processes - from sketches to choice of supplier and final product. It is a collaborative effort with a single aim of creating great design. Design that is well made, made to last and made with an eye for the people producing it and our global environment .
Our approach to design is analogue - we keep our designs simple and easy to understand. This is also true of how we produce them. Creating products that are long lasting, repairable and which stay relevant for more than just a few years.
Our designs are characterized by functionality and simple components. We experiment with how things are constructed, developing new details and techniques for bringing different materials together in a way that is both solid and can be easily broken down. Meaning many of our designs are made up of just a few elements.
Sustainability has to be more than just skin deep.
For us great design is not just about creating a beautiful shape in the colour of the moment.
We just don't believe in single use products, furniture that only suits a trend, or quality that doesn't last.
A great product has to be designed to last, to be repaired and easily recycled if and when that time (hopefully never) comes. It must be made using quality materials, produced in an honest way and never with a negative impact on people or our global environment.
We are passionate about design and interiors - and love seeing our ideas come to life. However, not all of our ideas make it. Often a design that we otherwise believe is fantastic can't be made in a good way or shipped efficiently. When this is the case, we simply won't make it.
For that reason, we don’t have a huge collection. We present a few new designs yearly - that’s it.
Our products are:
We make it easy
1. Easy to repair
Our products are created so that they can be repaired easily. So that should a part break, then only the piece that is broken needs to be replaced rather than the product as a whole.
2. Easy to recycle.
Whilst our products are designed to last, it's important to accept that needs can change. Much of the furniture built in the early part of the 1900's can still be found today, but why don't we keep it? Quality is often great. The thing is that how we use our furniture and what we find beatiful is not the same now as it was then. So whilst our products can be repaired and maintained indefinitely they can also be easily stripped to their individual parts and recycled.
Made to protect. Then recycled.
3. Packaged responsibly
We treat the design of our packaging as important as our products. Our packaging is cardboard based, with no lamination. It protects our products through the rigors of shipping, and once its job is complete can easily be recycled.
Ship as little air as possible
4. Optimised for transport
Our products all consist of separable parts, ensuring that they can be packaged in there most reduced form, thereby, cutting down transport volume to an absolute minimum.
Transparently high standards
5. Produced with care
We like keeping our producers close. That's why more than 40% of our production is based here in Denmark. It's also why 95% of our total production takes place within the EU.
Keeping our producers local helps us to minimise our transport from production to our primary sales market. Europe. Which just makes sense.
But it's about much more than that. It’s about how we produce.
We care about how the workers who produce our designs are treated. All humans have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. And we care about how we affect the environment around us.
Placing the vast part of our production in Europe supports these beliefs. We always hold our suppliers up to our stringent standards, and producing in the EU means that there is furthermore a strong legal framework supporting us when making sure that people and environment are treated right.
