Here you will learn about what drives ÅBEN, our reason for being. We want to take care of the world and to encourage you to reimagine traditional Nordic design values.
A New Beginning
At ÅBEN we are providing a route to market that has never existed before. This path leads from exceptionally talented Nordic designers directly to ÅBEN customers worldwide.
Simplicity & Purity
ÅBEN’s design talent doesn’t need embellishment, so we’ve pared everything back, creating a space for the work and the story behind it. There’s enough noise in life, ÅBEN is a place for reflection.
Taking Care of the World
No-one can remain blinkered to the need for change in our society. Each of us has the power to look at our own lives and make a small adjustment. We launched ÅBEN with the goals of sustainability firmly to the fore.
We like telling the story of design; provenance is as captivating to us as the finished product. We’ve formed a personal relationship with our designers and we want our customers to do the same.
Traditional Values: Reimagined
True craft is timeless; we utilise modern technology to connect with the substance of craft. The transparent partnership with our designers builds trust in both the quality of the design and the entire process from the workshop to your home.
Quality with Meaning
We’ve spent a long time in the Nordics finding the brilliant few that make up our Founding Designers. Each one was handpicked for the exceptional quality of their work and their dedication to function, innovation and sustainability. Every last detail matters.
