BEdesign is a young and innovative company founded by the sisters Bette and Cilla Eklund in 2012. It has its roots deeply in the Finnish architecture, arts and design. Great emphasis is put in aesthetics, functionality as well as outstanding quality materials.
All products are created and manufactured in Finland. Bette is responsible for the product design and developing the artistic vision of the company, while Cilla is responsible for the business development. Both sisters are passionate about nature, having grown up on a farm and spent their childhood being surrounded by animals and outdoor life.
“My passion for design comes naturally, as coming from a family background of architects and designers, I have been surrounded by architecture, arts and design my whole life. I would describe my design style as modern and minimalistic.
My work is strongly influenced by nature, the purity of raw materials, and geometric forms. The starting point is to design individualistic furniture that stands out from the crowd. My wish is to create a design language of 'tomorrow's classics', contemporary design that stand the test of time.” Bette Eklund
“The spark to becoming an entrepreneur has grown during my studies, and the company is a step towards realizing my dreams. I have a Master's degree in Strategic Market Creation from Copenhagen Business School and a CEMS Master's in International Management - degree from HEC Paris. I'm responsible for the business development of the company, especially marketing and sales.
Curious and open-minded, I'm always on the lookout for inspiring things and happenings. ” Cilla Eklund
