Blå Station is a family business, established in 1986 and based in the little seaside town of Åhus on the Swedish south-east coast, where the sea is forever restless. Just like them.
Blå Station was born from a designer’s desire to put into production furniture which he himself liked and which, to his mind, deserved a place in the market. The designer was Börge Lindau, who, after many years as partner in the highly successful Lindau & Lindekrantz design-team returned to his home town to create a company run entirely along his own lines.
Blå Station makes furniture using carefully chosen techniques and materials. For many years their language of design has been intimately associated with circles, birch and stainless steel – Börge’s preferred ingredients when designing. Today - the next generation with Mimi and Johan Lindau is in charge - the expressions, materials and shapes have developed from close cooperation with new young designers, new industries. But the philosophy behind it all remains the same. They believe that to meet the demands and desires of today you need an innovative frame of mind, a child’s curiosity – and a heart that refuses to take the easy way out.
Curiosity is Blå Station's fuel as they keep searching, not for the already known and established, but for the unexpected, yet-to-be-discovered. Sometimes that is compelling for them to decipher new codes; to dissect the entire production process from standing tree to sitting surface, from iron ore to metal frame.
The perfect symbiosis of design and technique is accomplished through the usage of new materials and innovative ways of producing which are unified with individual forms and figures. From office furniture to the couch in the living room, Blå Station offers a wide range of current Scandinavian object furniture design.
