ST-109 Textile Furniture

Company: Jaba Group AB
Project Manager: Anders Bergner, Swerea

Description:
Within the furniture industry, there are high demands on environmental friendly product, at the same time as a number of different material and surface treatment often are used in the same product to meet technical requirements. On top of this, there are functional demands and, not the least, a need of aesthetic values and creative thinking.

With textile material as a starting point, both environmental requirements and freedom of design, are made through form pressing of double-curved, wide-surfaced details, such as chairs. The method is also suitable for sounds absorbents like screening walls and wall panels of different forms.

The purpose with the project is to gather a well-functioned network of furniture companies that represents the entire processing chain and to reach pre-series production and launch at least three new products within 18 months.
