Minus tio

 

Our partner brand Minus tio from Sweden was founded by Olle and Ingrid Wingård and got its name a winter’s day in 2008. -"How cold is it?" Ingrid asked Olle as they woke up. The weather is as essential to her as it is to many other Swedes. – "Minus tio" (meaning minus ten in English), Olle replied. – "That’s cold". Later that day they started working, and a few months later their first collection was launched under the name Minus tio. The materials they use for their designs are wood, steel, and leather.

It evokes associations to railway stations and scout camps, to Sella Curulis and 60’s camping equipment.In Scout the cross functions as a carrier of a massive wooden board or an upholstered seat. But the construction is exaggerated to clarify that the cross is also a matter of aesthetics. Wood and leather is used in the parts that meet the user and floor, and steel in the exposed suspension structure. Scout comes as bench, lounge stool and lounge table.
