Ringvide is a Swedish company based on the island of Gotland. Ringvide designs and produces furniture and products for home and office use. Ringvide was established by designer Lukas Dahlén together with Leila Dahlén Alwaheb. Lukas has worked as a product designer and an architect for several years and received his training and degree at the University College of Arts and Crafts, Konstfack in Stockholm. Ringvide creates products with high integrity and an expressive visual language that lean against a combination of traditional craftsmanship and new technologies. Nordic form is characterized by simplicity and functionality, which are important values for Ringvide. They want to give their version of Nordic form with a vivid expression. Ringvide participates in efforts to promote sustainable development through the choice of materials and finishing as well as trying to keep the production on a local level, in their own wood shop. This is important to them since they want to keep the transport short, keep a close relation to their products' skilled craftsmen and encourage rural livelihoods and industry. From an ecological perspective a long-lasting product is the most durable product. Therefore Ringvide only creates products of high material, functional and aesthetic quality. They use materials that age beautifully with the aim that their products will live for generations. Founders, Lukas and Leila, chose to move from Stockholm to Lukas' birthplace Gotland to begin a new life with other values. Gotland offers closeness to the sea and magnificent scenery, a living countryside with a large number of skilled craftsmen and creative entrepreneurship in various forms. Here they can find peace and inspiration combined with a close relationship with their manufacturing companies and thus also contribute to the cultural growth of Gotland.
