Blå Station is a family business located in what used to be a sewing factory in Åhus, on the southeast coast of Sweden where the ocean is just as restless as they are.
When Blå Station moved in during the spring of 1986, they placed a few furniture prototypes in one of the corners of the building. And in the beginnig, before production was up and running, they filled empty echoing rooms with art exhibits and jazz concerts. It was fun and the place became our “Station” – which they thought was a very fitting name. Because at a station, there´s always something going on – a constant flow of change.
The second half of our name was given. Blå Station’s founder, furniture designer Börge Lindau, used the signature BLÅ on drawings – the B and the L being the initials of his first and last name and the Å representing Åhus where he had settled.
Blå Station is driven by a desire to put into production furniture. 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.
Motivated by the pleasure of what they are doing, Blå Station continue to develop new products. Thoughts are focused on the interiors that sourrund 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? There are many questions that inspire us to think differently.
At Blå Station, they have taken a stand and made our choices based on emotions and our consciences. They follow our seven criteria for sustainable development and furthermore, have chosen to produce everything in Sweden. They have made this choice in order to ensure each link in the chain of production follows our criteria.
To meet today´s demands and desires, Blå Station believes it is necessary to have and open and innovative mind, a child´s curiosity as well as a heart that rejects shortcuts and apathy.
To Be and To Do. ToBeDo!
