Taking the swedish legacy into the future
Minus tio makes furniture in a Swedish context, using classic materials such as wood, steel and leather. The design of each piece is based on a strong central idea which takes expression in consistent design, refined detailing and durable solutions. All furniture is manufactured in Sweden and special care is always taken to the environmental impact.
To create great furniture Minus tio keeps a close relation between the design and the manufacturing. The techniques used are often a combination of traditional craftsman skills and modern high tech solutions, both having a strong connection to the Swedish heritage.
Since the start the company has focused on environmental issues. Materials as well as processing methods are chosen with great consideration of their environmental impact and manufacturing is kept close to minimize transport. Further more the furniture is designed and manufactured to last many years, thereby keeping the use of resources low.
