So these days, we don't just need chairs for support, but seating solutions that stimulate variation and movement as well.

Lundia Shelving was born in Sweden.
In 1946 Harald Lundqvist utilised a self-tensioning principle which held components together. He applied these principles to a range of timber shelving which provided incredible strength and durability for his finished product.
Harald patented this system in 40 different countries and pioneered the Lundia brand as we know it. Lundia products today are globally represented and are renowned for their quality, strength, versatility and durability.
A distinctive feature of Lundias solid timber shelving systems is the special shelf
design. The points carrying the heaviest load are reinforced, which means that a
Lundia shelf can carry 175kg in weight, with a maximum of 580kg per shelving bay,
regardless of the shelf size.
