The Swedish company RVW Furniture was founded by the two designers Jonas Nordgren and Johannes Herbertsson in 2009. Based in Malmö in the south of Sweden they work closely with suppliers in the Öresund region and Småland to produce their furniture.
Like many designers Nordgren and Herbertsson grew tired of the fast paced design business and decided to take matters into their own hands.
“Things are finding their own pace now and we are working in close contact with our suppliers. Producing something that’s more than a throwaway takes time. There are so many logos and slogans about sustainability or local production, but to communicate expression or comfort is more delicate: if someone has to tell you how to enjoy a furniture or artwork, then it is not a good piece of art,” says Jonas Nordgren.
