2023 / 05 / 25 - Built to Last ed.2

OP and Norrmalms Kartongfabrik (NKF1916) have teamed up for Build-to-Last Edition 2. We have collaborated on a light solution using a proven box manufacturing technique. The design is intended to be assembled by you during the Stockholm Creative Edition event, taken home and used with love.

Build-to-Last puts emphasis on how things are put together and involves you in the process, highlighting the feelings of pure joy from using your hands to create something. Exploration extends to manufacturing techniques, materials and form. The result is essential interior objects that push boundaries and challenge the status quo.

NKF1916 is known for combining the pragmatism of utility with an Old World reverence for fine craftsmanship that leads to unboxing creativity. 

To sign up for the event RSVP here.

If you miss the event but still want to visit us, come any time during the Stockholm Creative Edition via their website.

2023 / 04 / 30 - Härnösand Public Pavilion

We are building a pavilion for Street Moves, ArkDes and the city of Härnösand located at the citys historic boardwalk, Skeppsbron.

The pavilion is built from salvaged timber, 2,400 cubic meters, that fell of cargo ship outside of the city during a storm earlier this winter. 2,400 cubic meters of sawn timber now on it’s way to become a public pavilion benefiting the inhabitnats of Härnösand.

2023 / 02 / 17 - Build to last Ed.1

Last Wednesday OP’s first edition of “Build To Last” took place in our Stockholm Office.We want to thank everyone that came, we really are overwhelmed by your support, energy and enthusiasm that you all brought! We promise to host a second edition soon so all of you who went home empty handed will get a chance to build your own stool!

"Build to Last" is our new forum for creating, building and discussing design & architectures which we hope can inspire and educate. With this edition, we've tried to prove that you can create quality furniture without reinventing the wheel. We used local Swedish wood with honest manufacturing techniques. Rethinking material standards makes us more efficient and affordable. Assembling furniture on site together with beer and friends is a plus but necessary in our books.

Let us know what happened to your own stool; make an Instagram post and link @o_p_se or send us a DM. We will refine the stool from our learnings after the event and soon launch our webshop on our website - Stay tuned! If you didn’t get a chance to build your own stool, let us know if you want to buy an assembly kit, contact us at info@o-p.se
2023 / 01 / 16 - IKEA Furnishing the Factory

We are starting of the year with a new, and some-what old, project together with IKEA. We are creating a new interior design concept for IKEAs workspaces in Älmhult. This is a team and project that we’ve been involved with for a long time now and it’s great seeing the project come together. Pictures from the kick-off that we hosted late last-year in our Stockholm office.
2022 / 12 / 20 - 2022 OP Report

Starting off the year with a variety of challenges such as adapting the office for new challenges with &Other Stories, simplifying how we consume locally produced food with Nordish and ensuring you take medicine on time by launching Mevia’s adherence devices.Pushing for more positive improvements with more clients; adapting the office for new challenges with &Other Stories, simplifying how we consume locally produced food with Nordish and ensuring you take medicine on time by launching Mevia’s adherence devices.

OP has also gained new knowledge from projects started within the company, such as outdoor camping products, cross laminated wood furniture and starting our own property company together with our good friends at Vindshem called Arkipelad. We want to change the way we build and live in our homes, from sustainable materials to an adaptive way of contextually designing a space.

After the summer break with the batteries recharged and new team members we embarked on some incredibly exciting projects; Having the privilege of working together with the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design and Härnösand’s municipality designing the streetscapes if not centered around the car. Speaking of vehicles, we’re also working on an interesting collaborative project with Volvo Cars along with a new OP client, Volvo Group. It’s been a blast working intensively with two of Sweden’s largest corporations and exciting material is coming soon. Finishing out the year we’ve started a new collaboration with Crescent Garden, re-defining outdoor storage furniture with fully recycled plastics that will declutter your living spaces.

2022 saw OP open its doors to a new office in the countries’ capital Stockholm with a great bang, branching out our possibilities together with our fantastic clients on their current and hopefully future journeys!

There’s many exciting possibilities to come in the next year and we look forward to celebrating OP’s first 5 years of existence with many more to come.
