Our team at AOS is constantly on the lookout for innovative product solutions to support our clients awe-inspiring designs. So, you can imagine how excited we were to score exclusive distribution rights in Louisiana for Danish furniture company, Holmris. Holmris Office A/S is a family owned company, and through 3 generations Holmris has supplied the Danish living-and project market with premium-quality furniture. Since 1994 they have specialized in manufacturing office furniture and are now among the most innovative Danish companies within the furniture industry. They keep constantly focus on ergonomics, functionality, design and trends, and our furniture meet today´s requirements to modern quality furniture. All of which is more than evident in the three cutting edge products below.
How we function in the space around us plays an important role in our daily lives. Highly functional spaces are easy to come by from day to day, but are they exciting and unique? The designers at Holmris have been leading office innovation for nearly three generations and continue to push the envelope each year. We are always looking forward to the latest development from these “Innovators by Nature” and three have caught our eye this month: the IGLOO, the SHARK chair, and the X-TABLE.
The concept for the IGLOO was originally designed for a college in Southern Denmark by AART Architects. Boldly built in three eye-catching colors, it is available in a variety of customized specifications. Capacity can reach up to twenty persons standing with a choice of three different seating arrangements. This multi-use space was designed as a specialized acoustic environment where technology can be easily incorporated.

It is not every day that you meet a stackable yet eye-catching chair, but what if it had bold color and a sleek design? The SHARK chair was designed by Hans Thyge & Co., a Denmark based company whose works encompasses interior design, architecture, and everything in between. While the name of the chair may seem harsh, its design is the exact opposite. Displaying strong and curved lines, this chair is sure to increase a room’s personality. SHARK is designed as a systems product, meaning it has possibilities for chairs to be linked in rows, to be stacked, and to add armrests. Tubular legs make it easy for SHARK to be used in canteens, meeting rooms, classrooms and conference rooms.

Back: Available in 3 standard colors or 5 Veneers
Seat: Available in 3 standard colors
Fabric: Available in 14 standard fabrics
Stackable: 28 on trolley/10 on floor

Inspired by design principles present in the carjack and ironing board, the X-TABLE offers a height adjustable workspace for the ever-changing user in today’s office. The frame is available in black or white, with the desk top available in the option of black linoleum, smoked oak veneer, or walnut veneer. There is nothing flashy about this product. Just clean, modern design bringing century old engineering to the forefront. There are some things that never go out of style and I think we can add this one to the list.
