Danish company specializing in sustainable and swan-labeled small furniture and accessories. COLLECT furniture was founded in 2008 with the launch of furniture designed for children, focusing on motivating and irritating their curiosity, while the quality and design of furniture appeal to parents and grandparents.
The children’s furniture is not only for the children’s room, but designed to fit in throughout the home, thus giving the children their space in the adults’ rooms. Several of the children’s furniture is even as functional for the adults themselves!
The collection has since been expanded with furniture created for adults: coffee table edge, the reel VinkL and the BiRP magnets – all legend and multifunctional. The entire collection is designed by Frederic Collette.
ABOUT THE DESIGNERS
Durability, sustainability and safety are in focus already in an early design phase. With a background as civil engineer, designer Frédéric Collette is deeply involved in all aspects of production, considering the overall environmental impact of ceilings to graves with strict requirements – not only with regard to the use of certified sustainable wood, glue and oil, but also such as packaging, production ethics, health impact on children who use the furniture and ensure strong long-term products. This approach has given some of our furniture the Nordic Ecolabelling Swan label, which clearly communicates our health and safety awareness, environmental considerations during production and high quality.
The massive oak elements are manufactured at a local joinery on Falster in the south of Denmark or in Alytus region in Lithuania, where carpentry is a long tradition, as it is in Denmark. Some furniture parts and assembly work is done by Designer Frederic Collette himself in his workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark.
