Blå Station is a brand that approaches product design by focussing on the interiors that surround us – how they are built and how they work. How do we interact in the public space? Has today´s society added new demands? Has our way of socializing changed? These and many other questions inspire Blå Station to truly think differently.
Blå Station, a family business, was born in 1986 from furniture designer Börge Lindau’s desire to put into production furniture which he himself liked and which, to his mind, deserved a place in the market. When they moved into what used to be a sewing factory in Åhus, a small coastal town in south-east Sweden, Lindau and team placed a few furniture prototypes in one of the corners of the building along with art exhibits and jazz concerts. It was a fun environment and the place quickly became known as became their “Station” – rather fitting, as a there is always something going on at a station; a constant flow of change.
Blå Station creates the ideas for industrial and at the same time traditionally classic forms from the conflicting priorities of industrial serial production and advanced material handling. Curiosity and adventurousness are, according to their statements, the fuel of the company. New materials and innovative production technology united with individual form and design present a perfect symbiosis of design and technology. Blå Station has a wide range of current Scandinavian furniture object design from office furniture to the living room sofa.
Many Blå Station products are made to order which is why next to the standard models made on the production side other project-related materials and colours are also available on request.
