Fogia was established in 1981 by Hans Rosander and Lars Fritzell, and originally named A.B.G — Trading. The founders’ developed a pioneering method for joining sheets of plexiglass to create striking tables and storage. In the years that followed, the company grew and began producing other pieces of furniture, changing names to Fogia Collection in 1986.Fogia’s reputation as makers of quality furniture developed fast, receiving plenty of contract and public space commissions while also steadily building a network of retailers around Sweden. Their furniture is crafted by hand from scratch in our their factory in Gdansk, Poland. They use the best mix of traditional and modern techniques, controlling production quality throughout the entire production chain.One of the main aspects that defines Fogia is their approach to selecting and working with wood and timber. they select timber while it still grows in the forests close to their factory, and always try to source locally to minimise transport. They also start with the uncut log, milling it themselves to minimise waste.And their natural materials and suppliers are close partners, again allowing them greater control and to ensure they meet their own stringent environmental standards. Fogia is no longer owned by its founders, and was given a new lease of life in 2011 when a new owner stepped in. The Fogia collection was overhauled and the brand began a new direction, working collaboratively with a roster of designers from across the Nordics and Europe.Fogia remains loyal to its roots as one of Sweden’s upholstered furniture experts but also pushes boundaries within the conventional design framework. Today, Fogia sets the tone and pace of Swedish design with modern icons like Tiki and Bollo altering the shape and expression of Nordic design.Fogia is the benchmark of Swedish design; always likely to surprise and innovate to break with traditional norms.
