Wehler's design

Brand philosophy

Wehlers stands for Scandinavian minimalism

The company designs its products true to the motto: They don’t think the world needs more designed furniture – however, there need to be more options for conscious consumption. In addition, Wehlers follows the Danish design tradition, in which honesty is seen in the material, and form is defined from Scandinavian minimalism and function.

R.U.M Chair - Short for re-used-materials, the name says it all

With its R.U.M (Re-Used Materials) series, the company is presenting a chair that is made from 100% ocean plastic and recycled steel. The design is characterized by Scandinavian minimalism - unique and young, contemporary design perfect for co-working and home office.
