(Oslo/London, 23 May 2022) Flokk and newly acquired Connection Seating will both take part at the Clerkenwell Design Week, an important venue to present the companies’ combined strengths for designers and architects.
“We’re excited to return to Clerkenwell as the show gets rolling again after the two-year corona hiatus. We’re also excited to talk about the future of Connection as part of the Flokk house of brands and the advantages this offers our customers,” says Kelvin Bromley, Managing Director of Connection Seating.
Flokk acquired Huddersfield-based Connection Seating in March, expanding its footprint in the strategically important UK market.
“Connection is a perfect fit for our Flokk. It has a strong position within collaborative furniture, including rooms and booths, and excellent channels to designers and architects in the UK project market, complementing Flokk’s offering and underlining our position as a total seating solutions provider. I’m really looking forward to unveiling this new partnership at Clerkenwell,” says René Sitter, Flokk Senior Vice President Central Europe.
With its roots in Scandinavia, Flokk is today the leading European manufacturer of office seating products, with a strong foothold in the US market and annual revenues of more than EUR 300 million. Flokk is a carefully curated house of brands, each with its own unique identity. Flokk’s brands include HÅG, RH, RBM, Giroflex, Offecct, Profim, BMA, Malmstolen, 9to5 Seating and Connection Seating.
Since making its debut in 2009, Clerkenwell Design Week has become one of the UK’s leading independent design festivals. More than 100 resident showrooms in London’s most creative district open their doors from 24 to 26 May.
Among the highlights from Flokk and Connection at Clerkenwell Design Week is the launch of Profim Revo, a modular system by London-based designers Pearson Lloyd. At the Flokk showroom, there will be several events, both with Pearson Lloyd and with Polish designer Maja Ganszyniec – the designer of the new Normo chair from Profim.
At the Connection showroom, one of the main attractions is the launch of the new work café Grids as well as the new Malia chair made out of Seaqual yarn.
