We’ve Got the Details on Granit’s First Furniture Collection
We have been fans of Granit for a looong time, and see them as the go-to destination for everything from kitchen supply, to interior details and products for storage and organisation. Our community office desk has a full set of their office utensils, and it couldn’t look better, don’t you think? We love them for their natural material selection and clean, simple aesthetics that’s deeply rooted in our shared Scandinavian heritage, and makes us feel right at home.
The Swedish lifestyle brand has been around since 1996 when Anett Jorméus och Susanne Liljenberg came up with the idea of offering smart and functional home products that make everyday life just a little bit easier to manage. This year, in March, they’re branching out the collection with their first furniture series designed completely in-house, which follows the same idea of simplicity and functionality.
The name, Modulär (Modular in english), refers to the multifunctionality of the furniture, which works as modules in a flexible system that can be changed and reshaped over time depending on your shifting needs. The different units can be stacked on top of each other or scaled down to fit big or small spaces. The idea is to “inspire a more long-term way of thinking about home decor, where you can add on to the existing instead of replacing it or buying new”, says Eva-Lena Degerhäll, head of concept development at Granit.
The four products are made in a small-scale production in Europe using a light birch plywood, which is treated with a water-based wax to make it easy to maintain (just use natural soap and a damp cloth). The measurements are cleverly customized to fit Granit’s classic boxes and cushions, and the furniture can be used in any room throughout your home (not in the shower though, so don’t even try!).
