Chair No.1 : Steel by Göhlin Sweden

Steel by Göhlin Sweden : The debut for a new furniture Swedish company: Steel by Göhlin, based in Gnosjö, will be showing one of its first products at Sweden "It is a fantastic feeling. It started as a kitchen remodel, but now Pontus and I have designed and produced a whole new furniture collection", said Catrine Göhlin. The architect Pontus Lomar and the entrepreneur Catrine Göhlin met for the first time a few years ago through a mutual friend. Several months later, Catrine commissioned Pontus to renovate the kitchen of her villa in Gnosjö. The project quickly expanded and evolved into a collaboration which has now resulted in a new Småland furniture company.

Catrine provides the ideas, and Pontus the designs. "Catrine wanted products that were not available on the market, so I suggested making them ourselves", said Pontus Lomar. Pontus Lomar, who founded Lomar Arkitekter AB over twenty years ago, has completed many new buildings and renovations, offices, restaurants and prominent residences, both in Sweden and abroad. Now he is a furniture designer, too.

"I have heard about the collaborative and can-do spirit of Gnosjö for many years, but now I know what it means and what it can accomplish", says Pontus Lomar. Catrine grew up together with the family business in Smålandsstenar, a town in the Gnosjö region in the province of Småland in Sweden. Her father Erik began to manufacture stair railings in 1957, and steel was his material of choice. The firm grew quickly and soon became EAB, which is now a global company run by Catrine’s brothers Pelle and Svenne Andersson.

"Our furniture items have steel as their main component, and everything is made in Småland; mainly by EAB, naturally", states Catrine.

The work with the new furniture company went on in secret for about six months. The collection already consists of a dozen pieces – including tables, sideboards, chairs, and more. "Our products are characterized by a refined simplicity and Småland’s quality", says Pontus Lomar.
