We fell in love with the furniture design from District Eight when at vacay in Vietnam 2014. Less than a year later we brought the concept to Sweden. In a few years we have been given the honor to furnish stores, hotels, offices and homes all around Europe.
Founded in April 2010, District Eight is a furniture design firm that creates quality work, inspired by the industrial age. Informed by their location in Ho Chi Minh City their work reflects the raw and bold character of the surroundings. District Eight create handcrafted furnishing that combines industrial elements with modern aesthetics.
” My main interest in the industrial age and the colonial period is due to the quality. Things were built to last and there was a well thought out element to even the most utilitarian objects or machinery. It is a real contrast to today’s disposable, purely functional mindset. It’s important to integrate quality into it in order to keep it timeless and sustainable”.
